'''Early Summer'''<br />
For early summer, you should prepare hive boxes with an appropriate number of wax foundation frames. Additionally, you will need some extra bottom boards, hive roofs, and hive bodies with wax foundation frames for managing swarming colonies.
'''Mid Summer'''<br />
The drone rearing usually stops in mid-July. The next varroa control, then, is carried out in [[Formic acid or thymol|August]]. You should prepare materials and equipments for:
* harvesting, extracting and storing the honey yield
* feeding the honey bee colonies
* controlling the varroa mites after harvesting.
