by useing natural oils you can rid your hive of mites and shb.
my fall prevention is to feed honey along with wintergreen to your bees in the fall to help keep out mites.
eucalyptus oil along with your honey to prevent shb.
when treating the bees along with fall flow this way you don't contamanate your honey with the strips
also your honey is free from pesticides
been doing this for over 5yrs and had my state inspection=free from mites
so far=so good
