a count of 63 mites over 24 hours. I have about 7 full frames of bees
- I don't want to use chemicals but
- mechanical treatments.
- I have thought about using Api Var Life.
Just wanted to get people's opininons on what to do.
It is huge load of mites and only 7 frames.
- there is no mechanical treatments to mites, not at least efficient.
- Api Var has composition: 100 g of product contains Thymol natural crystals 74g.
Thymol is very good treatment in fall.
I hope that your brood are not the last before autumn, because they are heavily violated. It means a small cluster and not much healty bees.
Nobody wants chemicals but who wants hive to die?
