    Exclamation mites?

    Hey guys im new to beekeeping just hoping to get some good advice from you guys.
    I hear of mites killing lots of the bees out here and im just curious to know what medicines have been effective in keeping our little friends alive.
    I know that that there are different medicines so if I can get some feedback on what you guys have been using and what the effects are, that would be great! TY

    scientificbeekeeping.com/ is Randy Oliver's site where you can settle back for a long evening of reading about mites and what to do about them. Randy has been writing about mites for a looooonnnngggg time. Third item on the menu is varroa!

    I second what Rusty said. When you're done fully reading Randy's site, you'll know about all of your options. The most important of which is knowing your varroa levels.

    Now that it is legal in all 50 states and you know you have a high mite population put an Apivar strip in and be done with em.
