    By the way, PMS (for beekeepers) stands for parasitic mite syndrome. I believe it was initially used to describe the severe symptoms seen in hives with heavy loads of both Varroa and tracheal mites, then beekeepers discovered that the same symptoms could appear with heavy loads of either mite alone (maybe due to viruses becoming more noticeable among the bees weakened by mites).

    Thanks Kieck, I should have been more clear about a couple of terms.

    We have 43 votes so far. Great response, interesting results. I'm going to tally the results and post them Sunday.

    I want to vote for options 1,3 and 4 on the first question. It depends on the hive. As a result, I didn't vote.

    I'm in. For Varroa I also use screened bottom boards as well as Sucrocide. I didn't see those offered.

    Folks, Thanks for an incredible response to this poll. I need those who have not indicated they voted to do so. I plan to publish these results on Sunday. It is really important to know what geographic area we are representing. Those who haven't voted please do so. Ross, vote based on your hives a whole, please, your opinions are important!

    Thanks for a great response, I'll do the foot work to get there results in format that mean something for us all.

    I'm not knocking your poll Joel, I voted and I think it's pretty much a good poll, but I think before I create a poll, if I create a poll, I'll run the questions and format by the general populace first to avoid those "I didn't vote because" situations. I haven't followed all the responses on this one, so I don't know how many people felt "left out", but I see one above on this page.

    Keep up the good work,

    I felt the first question should have allowed more than one answer (The first two are both true in my case). I voted anyway.
