If you're located in the Northeast and you've decided to buy a few horses for your property, then you probably have spent a lot of time setting up the stalls and stables in order to protect the horses from the cold weather.

Varroa mites can cause a great deal of destruction to a beehive. They act as parasites that latch on to different bees, especially the brood. If left alone, the entire colony can die out.
