Re: Spring OAV treatment in NorCal?
Is that really true specifically for OA? How could the mites adapt to having their mouth parts burned off? Put another way, how could bison ever adapt to being driven off a cliff?

At the very least, it is not before and after photos of mites from a hive. (Not saying the photos are faked, etc., just wondering how they were made to better interpret them).
