It is early fall here in Kansas City, Missouri. Leaves are falling and temperatures are dropping. However, goldenrod and asters are still in bloom and bees are returning with their pollen sacks full. I harvested honey from my Flow hive last week. With the honey harvested it was time to treat for verroa. I put Aptivar strips in the 2 brood boxes and closed up the hive. I then noticed worker bees carrying out bees with deformed wing virus(DWV) and dropping them on the ground (see attached picture). I then pulled out the corrugated bottom board and there were verroa mites everywhere. I fear I have a heavy infestation.
As stated I have Aptivar strips in the hive now. I also have Mite Away QuickStrips on the shelf. My questions: should I stick with the Aptivar alone, add the Mite Away Strips, or is my Hive beyond saving no matter what I do?
