I expect that most of us have heard of the ‘Bond’ or ‘Live and Let Die’ method of mite resistance selection.
I would like to propose a new term for a different one. I want to call it the Head in the Sand (HITS) method. Going forward, I will try to use this term when responding to those who make statements such as ‘I don’t see mites, I don’t test for ‘em and they aren’t a problem’.
