Hive inspection and mite testing this Saturday!

Now is the time to get ready for winter!  What you do in the hive today will have the biggest affect 3 months from now!  This Saturday, August 14 at 10:00AM I will be up at the FLC performing inspections on all 3 hives and doing the ‘alcohol” version of mite testing.  I tested the hives 3 weeks ago and had 1 mite total in 2 hives and 0 in the third.   I am not expecting big things but this will be a good chance to see how hive inspections and mite testing is performed.  

Items to Bring

  1. Suit or Veil
  2. Closed toed shoes
  3. Long sleeves and pants
  4. Water
  5. Optional: gloves, hive tool and smoker.

Please be advised before we enter the hives you will be required to review a Waiver and Assumption of Risks Agreement and I will have you sign an associated signature page limiting the TVBC and City of Boise liability at the FLC during hive inspections.

See you Saturday!
