from what i have experienced this is going to be a very good tool in the fight against varoa
 the first couple days there is a lot of bearding and this clears up-there was dead bees on the
 ground -there was no injury or mortality to queens--except in colonies under five frames of bees
 i had three colonies less than five frames of bees-which i gave full dose-two got fried and one
 needed major help to get up and running again-all in all the bees rebounded back to point that they
 are swarming if not managed -the cost was $140 per 40 treatments-so $3.50 per hive-only available to me at that time in
 40 treatment size pails-but it is suppose to come around in ten packs-now i need to monitor and see how long it lasts
 but i will say this it kills mites very effectively -i will use it again - cool RDY-B

Excellent!  I look forward to using it.  I am a bit disappointed it will not be usable on nucs but everything cant be perfect.

Thanks rdy-b

  i think if you cut the dose in half-just one strip it will do nucs-without
 overdose-but i wanted to see for my self what we are dealing with as far as strength
 of product -also even though it pushed my weak colonies past there limits-it killed all the
mites as well so now i have clean yard of bees- with no straglers infecting clean hives- cheesy  RDY-B

"Brushy lists approval in these states:"

Oh yeah the great state of Wisconsin is on there and I totally fell for those who are not.  Im sure all states will have approval before long.  I cant imagine why a state would say no.
