Late season report

All my hive treatments are finally underway. I may be late, but all looks well ... so far. First, I found another 100+ lbs (40kg) of honey on the hives; all look healthy, and this weekend after between 8 and 4 days of treating with Apistan, the mite drop doesn't look as severe as I have seen in previous years.

But could any resistant varroa be lurking? I hope not. None have yet been found within 50 or so miles, but it can't be long now until they arrive.

And will all the queens manage to continue laying throughout winter? Now there's a question!
