Hi all and Happy New Year.
I've just joined this group and have my first question.
I was late this fall getting my varroa check done and got high enough counts in mid November that I think I needed to do something, so I put in a couple of Apistan strips. I had read elsewhere that at this late date they should stay in for the winter. They look strong otherwise.
I am not happy with this because just a few days ago I learned a nearby yard was almost wiped out and he claims the local mites have become very resistant to Apistan.
Now I am interested to know if FGMO could be used at this late date, and if yes, the best method of application .... or could I use something else.
I am just north of Toronto Ontario.
"hobby farm" is an oxymoron
