Hi guys, i think i’ve got on top of the wasp problem, and am still feeding my bees (I am in the midlands in the UK, and we are just starting to go into Autumn - warm days, cold nights!). I inspected them a couple of weeks ago and saw small amounts of larvae, a couple of eggs and some capped brood - but less than before. They seem to be doing what i would expect for the time of year (i haven’t spotted queenie since i’ve had them home), so wondered whether i should open them up at all?
I am going to be treating for varroa - i have a couple that i have spotted but have been advised to treat anyway, even though there aren’t many.
So should i inspect? if so how often? I would obviously only do it on a warm day, but how often at this time of year and what should i look for?
thanks in advance lovely Beeks!
