    I tired the newspaper route and it definitely didn't work. George Scott recommends sprinkling right on the top bars and cluster. The trial was done late in the season and with biologicals timing is everything. I did have the same type of results as the blogger but that doesn't mean it's ineffective. As stated before we need more research.

    This is an interesting video showing the pseudo scorpions killing varroa. Does anyone breed them in sufficient numbers to use as a treatment? As Michael Bush pointed out, they already exist in the hives, and this video is just as compelling as the ones we have seen on Ss.

    Someone is at least looking at how the pseudoscorpions breed. Not sure if anyone has figured out how to breed them in numbers.

    Hi everyone,
    Things are going on as planned and proper research will begin this year.
    A few major trials will begin in Spring across Canada and USA. I will send an update now and then. A paper will be published in the end of course, but I expect promising results to share early on, judging by the feedback we have collected so far.
    Cheers.
