these mites that have been troubling our bees have been around for a long time . from what i understand beekeepers brought the trouble on themselves by trying to have bigger bees through genetics.
    ive also read that mites are getting med resistant.....what to do HuhHuh

    we are going to buy bees every year,not medicate. and see who(if anyone) survives....if they do survive it will be because they are smaller. if we all did this i think eventually the mites would be whipped.
   maybe im all wet... but i have seen med tolerance develope in lab situations...meds are not a long term answer and just keeping these big bees around a little longer is only making the problem worse..let nature seperate the smaller, resistant may take quite a while but long term solutions usually do. i dont think we got inyo this overnight. or that mites are taking advatage of u.s. emigration policies.
