I have gone back and forth on treating bees for mites. Part of me says not to treat, because bees don’t get treated in nature. The other part says to treat, since bees die off when in managed hives. I have officially placed myself on the treating side of the fence. Bees in nature are not managed. They don’t have humans going in and messing around with their honey, comb, etc. The very name “managed hives” means we should.. umm… manage them. Part of managing a hive is taking care of it, treating it for possible issues. This is how I am treating for the dreaded Varroa Mite. This is a video demonstration of how I read the Randy Oliver method to go.
