Zander has been interested in insects since he was very little. We put this blog together to document his adventures as a first time Beekeeper.

Last Sunday (August 28th) we applied the last Hopguard treatment. We used Hopguard to get rid of the Varroa mites. Reducing the number of mites now will help the bees go into the winter stronger. The bees don't seem to like Hopguard. They get cranky when we get out the stuff.
Dad and I putting the last set of Hopguard strips in.
