    Sounds like you need to retreat. I lost three hives in oct after i treated with apivar. Get the mite away strips quick as you can while we have the warm air.

    Re: Honey or 1:1

    If i plan to use a deep and a medium for brood boxes could I start out that way and not use an excluder and let it go like that from the start?
