Hello. I’ve been planning to do a varroa test alcohol wash but I can’t find the queen in any reasonable amount of time. Not worried about seeing her too much since I see new eggs everywhere but does anyone have tips or maybe just give some relief on doing an alcohol wash when I can’t be 100% certain of the queens location?
Found her last week but didn’t have time to be in the hive too long. This week she’s back to illusive but leaving egg tracks everywhere haha.
I did do a mite board test. I had about 10 in 72 hours so I don’t think there’s any hurry right now.
