    Default Whew! So many choices.

    I have had my first hive for 3 weeks and love this. I have a hard time leaving them alone. I am wondering about controlling varroa mites. Is powdered sugar better than grease patties with wintergreen oil? Can I use both? When do I start using either?

    grease patties are for tracheal mites.

    You need to do mite drop on a sticky board prior to any treatment.
