Alan's Bee Chronicles - Fall Bee Treatment

What is happening: The honey supers are all off of the hives and I am down to two deep supers for brood chambers on all three hives.

What I am doing: I am preparing my bees for fall/winter by inspecting them and treating them to make sure they remain healthy. I inspected all hives for signs of the queen laying eggs and also for sign of mites (I did see signs of mites in two hives, in one of them I actually saw a mite on a bee.) I am working to treat my bees with all natural treatment methods. I am applying Api Var in between my two supers. I am also removing a frame from the top deep super, adding an inside feeder and feeding them sugar syrup with vinegar.What is happening: The honey supers are all off of the hives and I am down to two deep supers for brood chambers on all three hives.
