I'd like to know the real effective methods of treat mites,and the habits and characteristics of trachael mites. f.g it's life circle ,phototaxis ,temperature, and where does it parasit?
Yongsunn, I don't know too much about it myself..
I just give them menthol if they need it for trach mites....
I've not noticed trach mites in my bees yet but I do add menthol from time to time just for the heck of it.
Last year, I applied it once to two of my hives... I don't think they needed it though.
I begin treating my hives in Aug. here in Kansas.
