Re: Varroa mites! Now what?
6-8 weeks ago I had very high mite counts in my hive. I looked at the treatment options, thought about why it was that I got into beekeeping and decided not to treat. I did continue to monitor mite levels and saw a steady decrease over the last 4-5 weeks. I can't explain this. I hope my bees survive but have resigned myself to the possibility that they won't. A possibility that always existed regardless of treatment.
I wish you all the best, you're not alone in making this tough decision,
