      Have you asked why they do? YouTube is awash with videos saying it’s a good thing and a bad thing. You may have opened up a cupboard...

      Same as me, I’m not convinced of its efficacy on large colonies. Like you I did a sugar shake and had a high infestation, around the...

      Sounds like the Formic acid didn’t penetrate the brood sufficiently and didn’t kill enough mites. Did you use Formic Pro or Maqs? I...

      True , Dr Abe just has to adjust his treatment timing and monitoring of varroa in the summer for colonies showing above acceptable mite...

      Thanks for all the helpful advice! guess I was surprised partly because I requeened with a mated queen following the formic treatment...
