I have already harvested 30-35 ;lbs of honey from my two langstroth hives, am waiting for another 10-15 lb harvest from those, and maybe 10 lbs from my top-bar hive, which i haven't touched yet, due to lots of honey, but none capped. I started with three 3lb packages, sold two splits, and merged a swarm back in with the original hives. I'd say i did pretty well! I did notice a varroa mite walking across a comb in my top-bar hive. i'm waiting for the last harvest, and then on go the miticide strips!

you treat for the mites with either apistan strips or food grade mineral oil. with the strips, you cannot treat with honey on the hive, or it will be contaminated. with the FGMO, you can treat any time you like.
