End of season wrap-up

This weekend I removed the remains of the Apiguard and in one case Apistan strips from colonies in two of my three apiaries.

All looked well -- even that colony that had been badly affected by varroa. Apistan acts quickly and the colony may recover -- although I don't really want it to since I have sufficient colonies and I certainly don't want to prolong the genes of a colony which may be extra-susceptible to the mite.
