    I guess that is another regional thing. We've been pretty lucky here in Ks. Haven't really seen much ccd around here. Also a hive can go quite a while with mites giving us a good chance to save them.

    The jury is still out. I've had three early season deadouts....and all three were treated with hopguard. Having said that, all had two treatments only....and those were about two weeks apart....so I'm not blaming hg. On the other hand I can't say I'm overly impressed.
    I still have several hundred strips and am planning to do a better job of applying and documenting next season.

    It's not ppb, it's the Bond method! Sorry, could not resist.

    I always seem have a few unintentional Bonds in my yards.

    Took advantage of 53 degrees to find an IBM nuc of my own today. (Inadvertent sounds like I am not guilty, I like it more than unintentional.)

    Not quite - he treats... "Bond method" is no treatment = "live and let die"
    And it may or may not be ppb.... I've done that myself this year, painful realization. That's why autopsies are important. That's how we learn which mistakes not to repeat.

    I haven't either. The 'my bees disappeared' is often confused with absconds but is actually a mite driven collapse.

    Often that is the case here as well....but sometimes, especially with operator error, I miss the window.
