Hoping For A Warm Spring

Hope for a warm spring with early rains to get Dandelions and Caraganas thinking about blooming. If you have treated mites with a ‘hard’ miticide, consider unwrapping the hives, moving the miticide, and re-wrapping the hives, especially after 3-4 weeks from initial installation. This will allow you to ‘chase’ the brood through the hives and give you a better mite-kill.

Ensure you have:

Miticides/Strips

Extra Information

Early April – hope for a warm spring with early rains to get Dandelions and Caraganas thinking about blooming.  If you have treated mites with a ‘hard’ miticide, consider unwrapping the hives, moving the miticide, and re-wrapping the hives, especially after 3-4 weeks from initial installation.  This will allow you to ‘chase’ the brood through the hives and give you a better mite-kill.

Late-April – watch the weather.  Move your strips if time/weather allows. Depending on the number of hives and the weather (including the long-term forecast!) you might start thinking about unwrapping your hives.  But don’t worry if unwrapping doesn’t happen until early-mid May.
