How does one "get" mites?
I am treatment free because I have never seen anything that would require treating. I have tested for mites and always come up with nothing. I assume this is because all the bees I have gotten have either come in package boxes or in queen cages. Also, that I have always used new boxes, frames, and foundation.
So, how does one get mites? Used equipment? Nucs? Drifting? Catching swarms?
If you think anything organic is good for you, go drink some organic solvents.
