Here's a great video from our Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), Honeybee Inspector Jeff Pippin. Watch this if you want more confidence in checking for mites.
You can also come to the July 12th ABA meeting and hear Jeff in person discuss hive health and what he looks for when he does inspections. Don't forget to register your hives and pay your fee annual.
John said he is not doing the extractor anymore. Who is handling that now?
