Re: Treatment Free Mite Treatments
Drone brood harvesting can be surprisingly effective if done right.
Takes a while though so as you already have DWV the time factor may be an issue.
Is there dead brood? That marks the point when there are so many mites that more than one is going into a larval cell, and sucking the larvae to death.
However rather than simply let the hive die you could at least give drone brood removal a shot.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
