Re: "treatment treadmill"
john, do you autopsy your dead outs? if so, what have you found to have killed them? and what measures if any do you take to prevent spreading the problem to other colonies?
i know that some tf beeks don't do these things, and i am not rendering a judgement here.
i am asking because i have a hive that is dying. i have isolated it and plan to do an alcohol wash today, and will probably send a sample to my state lab for nosema testing.
i have two other hives that i am suspicious about.
all three are first year hives, and have not been treated or fed all year.
beekeeping since june 2010, +/- 20 hives, tf
