  4. Dear Tom, could you indeed post a photo (high-resolution, so we can study individual mites) so we can ask some researchers (around the globe) to look at it? Can you at least freeze (-20) a sample so we can get back to it? Kind regards, BartJan Fernhout

  5. Great to here and this seems to be the the general word I have been hearing on other forums. Also I have heard from several beeks that Apiguard and apistan etc is hard on queens and yet tests have proven that there is no detrimental effects on the bees at all using OA vapor. Seems to be a win win situation.Just wondering what is your treatment regime since you have been seeing such good results.

  6. Ive been using oa now for 12 months and am sold. Bees seem healther, queens lay better for longer. sure it takes more time than strips but hey the hives are in good nick going into autumn.

  7. Thanks for that Trevor and thats what I thought.Of course I did mean that Varroa cant become resistant.So all that being said there should be know real reason to sugar shake your bees if the treatments are being applied properly or this is my hope.

  8. OA kills varroa and not bees. I am not sure what book you are reading. (I am sure it is just a typo) so yes you are correct, Varroa cannot get resistant to OA
