hello barry, do you purchase foundation, or raw beeswax from beekeeping suppliers? well guess what your buying beeswax with all of the chemicals used to surpress varroa already contaminating your beeswax. and one more question, why are your bees becoming resistant to apstain? why because beekeepers are not following the medication directions, they are either pulling the strips out of the hives too early or leaving them in overwinter... one last thing when you give advice to beginning beekeepers your reciting from a book is just that, if thats all they need then why do colleges like cornell have master beekeeping programs? all beginners need to do is read a book right?
