Re: Treatment-Free in area with Pollinators from away
Andrew, that's a good woman you have there!
Raittlefield, on their website, B. Weaver says if you requeen a mite-infested hive with their queens, your mite problem will be solved. (perhaps an oversimplification of their claims, suggest you check it out). The idea I take away from that is that even if we're in areas where other bees work, the genetics of our queens and bees will take care of any problems "brought home." Hopefully Andrew will be able to prove that in a year or so.
