I have one hive and tested it using the alcohol wash method on 7-25-20 (3 mites/271 sample size) and again 8-16-20 (2 mites/357 sample size). I did not treat the hive after either sample. I inspected the bottom board for mites on 8-30-20 and didn't find any. Does it make sense that the mite count would decrease between the 2 test dates?
