I never have.

>how did it do on the mites .

It's only recommended for Tracheal mites.

>what  is the best stuff to uses..

Nothing works well for me.  Most of the bees have built up resistance to the Tracheal mites.  The sooner everyone quits treating the sooner we won't have any problem at all.

Once.  The bees hated it and most of them moved out and clustered under the hive.  Thought sure they were going to abscond.

I don't use anything.  Stopped buying packaged bees and no treatment, all my bees are now resistant.
