Hot weather reminders:
·       Make sure your hives have access to water: some put out poultry watering feeders, others use Boardman feeders of water at each hive entrance.
·       Crack open the top lids to help air ventilation.
·       Check for mite levels with an alcohol test for best accuracy and rinse the bees 3 times to get all the mites out for your count.
·       Remove large areas of drone brood before they hatch to decrease the number of varroa emerging.
