I have been searching for varroa life cycle info.
and not doing too well.Does anyone have some good (not TOO technical). thanks.
Also,(this has been driving me nuts)I read someones rhetorical question(wish I could give them proper credit),but it was something like:
"Are the mites we find on our monitor trays the result of better mite fighters,and are we passing by some of our best genetics by breeding only those colonies with low mite loads?"
I find that concept fascinating,IF true I've got one hive with some pretty good genes.
Wondering what you think.
