Hey,

Sorry if this is a silly question, but should I be leaving the varroa board off at this time? I got my nucleus a few weeks ago and put the board on a week later so I could check the mite count, but someone told me recently it's best to leave it off. If so, when should I replace it - at the end of summer?

Thanks

I leave mine out all year round.

Only use the board for doing a 24h drop count.
