Advice please - I may have to delay taking off supers next week or even the week after.
The varroa treatment should still be in time for the winter brood rearing if it goes on before end of August but do you get an immediate phoretic mite drop with ApiVar the same as you do with Apistan?????
I have never left supers on until the last week of August - any implications you can think of in leaving it that late?
I remove super end of August in Yorkshire. There is nothing in there that will crystalize
You might need to feed more sugar depending on how much honey you remove as they'll have less time to build back up honey stores.
Don't know about mite drop with apivar
