I've been browsing through many of the posts on SC and natural comb... I've read through BWranglers site... and I'm convinced to begin the switch to natural comb this coming season and see first hand how it works.
It appears that many are having success with it in controlling V-Mites, and I believe all of the reports are truthful and factual, but there is still one question that keeps nagging me which I hope someone can answer for me.
If these bees that are regressed to sc/natural comb have the ability to control the mites, then why did such a huge percentage of feral hives get wiped out by Varroa - weren't they all on sc/natural comb in their trees, barns, etc ?
What piece of the puzzle am I missing?
To everything there is a season ....
