Mite out - getting rid of Varroa Mites without chemicals (2019)

As we go int 2019 I have ten colonies in my chemical free apiary. The colony I called Hive1 turned into four colonies during 2018 and they all now have 2018 queens. The plan for those is to remove and monitor at least some of the mites early in the season and to compare each for honey production.
