@joshpugh Natural honey bee emergence and mortality rate is approximately 1,500 bees per day. A one-day equivalent of natural mortality (i.e. 1,200 to 1,500 bees or up to 2 cups) may be observed at the hive entrance during the treatment.
@hiveworldca: Meet The Beekeeper LiveStream tonight at 8 PM (MDT). See what our hives look like 2 weeks to the main flow in AB. We will also cover testing and treating for mites with Formic Pro as well as checking brood levels in a two box hive. https://t.co/gJivp6gGi8 #beekeeping #HWMTB https://t.co/1UHscwD7xu
