Ok, just watched the video.  I did not get the ad you did.  Oh well. 

But with the video, I would have guessed that cow pee would kill the eggs.   Who even came up with the idea of trying that.   "Hey, what can we do with this bucket of cow pee"  over a couple of beers?   Hey ya'll watch this.  I'll pour it on this bee hive. 

Everybody remember this when they buy imported honey from India.

And is this a non chemical treatment, all natural?

Try it from the point of view of someone from India.  Cow urine is sacred.  Why wouldn't it help?  Try it from the point of view of the bee.  Do you think it will increase grooming behavior?  Of course.  Now try it from the point of view of the honey consumer... well that one doesn't work so well... unless maybe you think cow urine is sacred...

This reminds me of the guy selling BEE-PEE Honey.

Here on the board a year or so ago, the guy said he was selling some of it.
