Carniolan Breeder Mite Wash 04/16/2022

Performed a mite wash on our 2021 overwintered, untreated breeder queen to see how things were going before we start making queens.

I hand counted the washed bee just to make sure I had an official score.

1 Mite in 563 bees or .18%!

Off to the races!!!!

The lone mite
