If you plan to treat this spring, now is the time.
It’s crucial that the treatment you use is appropriate for this time of year.
If you plan to treat multiple times this year, rotate the types of treatment being used to avoid
varroa resistance.
Try and check your hives weekly in early spring to ensure they have enough food stores.
Check your bee yard daily for swarms.
