Until I joined this forum, I had never heard so much about issues with the medication of hives - reactions to apiguard/home made thymol products, absconding queens, abrubt halting of brood laying, dead bees, etc etc with mixed volumes of varroa drop.

All this has got me thinking . . .

Is Thymol the best option around. Is it worth returning to Apistan / bayvarol for 1 season ? Is there another option ?

Any more ideas on how to treat ?


I guess what I am aiming at is a solution that doesn't affect the bee colony is really what we are searching for.
