State Bee Inspector came today. Got a great report.

State Bee Inspector came today. Got a great report. Went through six of our twenty hives and found not a single SHB!  Opened up a good hand full drone brood from four and not a single VM larvae!  He did find a couple of cockroaches.
Commented how it was a pleasure to see such clean Bees.  Asked about treatments we were using.  Couldn't believe we were having such good success using just SBB'a, full sun, and FGMO Fog.  He had previously inspected the original brood stock while in the hands of former owner and knew they were not like that when we got them. Said "Whatever your doing its working great."  Don't know if he thought I wasn't telling the whole truth or what but I was. :yippiechick: :yippiechick: :yippiechick:

Excellent.  Do you use thymol or anything other than mineral oil in the fogger?
