The first visit to my hives in 2015 was in order to apply oxalic acid to the bees to kill the varroa mites that are not in the brood.  Today I had a number of other members of SBKA with me who were being shown the correct way to apply the acid by Simon Croson.image

Following the treatment I added fondant for the bees to eat as stores of honey/sugar syrup are getting low.
