errrmmm, looks like i'll be the one to go "offtopic" in a way Tongue
most of beekeepers here y+use another way in controling varoe. almost everybody beekeep in AŽ 10 frame hives. from 10 frames-combs in the hive we take one out..beeh i've complicated. instead of putting 10 full foundations we put 9,5 if you understand. bees tend to build drone cells in unfounded areas. when drones are capped and you can see that they're big, you cut out all the drone cells with which you remove quite a lot of varoa (varoa likes drone cells). this may be done again and again. some say it's very efficient, some say it might cause varoa to concentrate on worker cells.

Let us all agree that there is a BIG difference on the effect and affect of natural occuring chemicals verses artificially manufactured ones.  Artificial chemicals (man made) are the ones that create such havoc on this planet of ours.

Life is a school.  What have you learned?   Brian      The greatest danger to our society is apathy, vote in every election!

<Artificial chemicals (man made)>
I understand your idea, and I am agree in the basic. But things are not so clear. Pyretroids are natural, thymol is in the middle of the way...There are not a word to design the "poison chemical" versus "ecologic chemical"

Oh now! Life is physics and chemistry. Not mere chemistry. But you can make beekeeping really difficult with your spiritual imagination.  shocked
