Varroa Mites...yikes!

Ashe County beekeepers are cautioned that the varroa mite infestation has started and everyone needsto be vigilant taking mite counts to see what kind of IPM is needed....and be deciding when to do it. Word from off the mountain form an experienced beekeeper is that they were plowing through many hives!!!

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"
