Feeding continued:

by Jorge

Today I have a nice image of how Alex is feeding the hungry hives. The boxes are offset in order to easily slip the nozzle into the lower feeder before filling the one in the top box.

It looks like we'll have another shipment of syrup coming in during the next week, so let us know if you're interested in coming by to pick up winter feed. We sell it by the bucket or barrel.

Ether rolls have shown a big jump in mite counts as the later brood emerges. Instead of 5-10 in the jar as we had in past weeks, he's encountering 15-20 more regularly. One had over 70. Several yards are getting another Apiguard treatment. Hopefully we can do some good in those locations before the temperature drops too much to intervene.
