    I just started 2 new hives with packages of bees April 20th. When should I treat with mite away strips since they are new hives? I have read that it should be done in spring and fall. What milestones do they need to reach before it is safe to treat? Do they need to have a certain amount of brood or population before testing for mites? or for treatment?
