Getting rid of Varroa Mites (without chemicals)

The start to the year 2020 could best be described as wet - not especially cold (no snow) but wetter than usual.

6th March I gave Hive2 two frames of honey above the crown board. Bees were present at the central feeding hole (see pic) and should be able to access the frames OK if they need them.


10th March. A much warmer day today - but not sunny.


The bees in Hive2 are eating the frames of honey that I put on above above the crown board on my last visit.
