    I am curious about one thing now Ian. Are you concerned with :-

    a) how many mites it kills
    b) how easy is the application
    c) possible use while in the wintering shed
    d) registration / lack thereof ?


    I'm guessing that it's easy to figure out your priorities on the first 3, but, where would you place the 4th in your list of priorities ?

    Curious minds......

    I have heard that the strips kill brood if placed as directed, but don't when laid across the top bars. Thats, all I've heard, and i've never used them.

    I've not experienced any brood loss. I've been very happy with how well Hopguard works and would be great for some with 4 or 5 hives. It's too expensive if you have very many hives though.
