Did a hive check at the Bee Garden with Krista about 2 years ago and we did a mite check. You scoop up about half a cup of bees, add 2 tablespoons of powered sugar in a shaker. You shake the sugar onto a plate and then add water to make the mites visible. Will need to do this next week before the Green River College comes out for Mite Control treatment next weekend.
