    I'm thinking that I may be renewing acquaintances with beekeeping friends that I haven't heard from in years.

    And here is another angle to consider:
    Commercial beekeepers have relied heavily on Taktic over the last several years with no measurable resistance problems in most areas.
    Some consider Taktic to be the life line for commercial bees in many years.
    Now, we are going to make amitraz available to every Tom Dick and Harry to place in their backyard hives or even commercial hives and forget about.
    How long will total resistance take to wipe out amitraz in the wrong hands.
    One thing that has saved amitraz from resistance problems is the deliver systems most folks use that is in and out. This new product is for 56 days?!!!
    I'm not so sure this is good news in the big picture, over the long haul.
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    I talked to a friend that was running a trial for one of the large places thats trying to legalize it country wide. He had favorable results from it. I am not sure how he used it (ie as prescribed). I always thought the effectiveness of taktic is because Beeks set the dosage level and because as you stated its in and out. I could be wrong as I WOULD NEVER color outside the lines and ONLY use Apiguard to treat for varroa.

    Get a Vet to write you a script for Mitaban and forget the EPA.
