It doesn't look like I have the reserves to rob this year. I'm going with chemicals and building for next year.
Apiguard is my selection. I had SHB probs and nothing beats a healthy hive. I don't see any reasons to take any chances with holistic approaches when I know the chems will do the trick and give me the best opportunity for strong hives next spring. Since I am not robbing my hives this year it seems like a no brainer.
Do you want to know how to get rid of SHB?....................roach killer.
*nevermind* I read your other thread and understand where you are coming from. Good luck with your hives!
