'''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
* [[Check varroa level|controlling the varroa mites ]] after harvesting.
