Just spotted this :oops:

Considering the speed the BBKA engages in new practices- 🐌🐌🐌🐌. - it won’t be in my lifetime!
 
The thought of vapourising this stuff fills me with horror.

You and me both. Good grief it is enough when that stuff is on a piece of plastic set within the hive let alone floating about in the environment. Do we even know the risk for other insects should this stuff settle on surfaces outside of the hive?
 
When I looked into Amitraz it is one of the most used pesticides around.
Problems are that it has some rather nasty effects on women, to a point women can't work in factories where it is made.
Birth defects and other problems of that type have been found with exposure to it.
Looks like all us lady beeks will be ok though 🤣🤣🤣
