  • Continue weekly inspections
  • Keep watching for swarms
  • Add supers as needed
  • Check extractor, sieves, buckets, etc and make sure all are clean and ready for extraction time
  • Transfer any nucs to full hives or combine with your present colonies
  • Check varroa mite drop; more than 8/day? Treat – but, if planning to take honey, treat by dusting with icing sugar
