After reading through many of the articles that mention this management technique I am still not 100% clear how you apply this to your hives. I understand why breaking the brood cycle works in denting the growth curve of mites. But how do you apply this management technique to your production hives? Do you actually take the queen out of a production hive (and if so, when?) and replace her with a queen cell or virgin queen? Or do you raise nucs with the intent to replace hives that will crash due to mites, which would actually not meet the "breaking the breeding cycle criteria. It seems many on here describes how they raise queens or nucs but than simply state they use them to "break the breeding cycle" to help in the control of varroa. Can you please describe the NEXT steps once you have a queen cell or virgin queen? Maybe I'm just more thick than usual in this... :-) Thanks in advance for your posts.
