    Default Re: HITS method of mite control

    Your original post to this thread didn't mention newcomers, did it?

    It merely proposed a perjorative label for people who find it unnecessary to test for mites.

    And on being presented facts concerning the foolishness of considering all who don't test for mites as being in denial, and an explanation of why one might find yourself more suited to that perjorative you immediately resort to red herring responses unrelated to what was said in the post you're responding to, and comments concerning hives you've never seen.

    It's unfortunate that the only justification you now put forward for your rude perjorative is a claim of concern for newcomers.

    Any newcomer not properly mentored whether in treatment free or treated beekeeping is stacking the deck against himself.
    But to assert that newcomers are somehow unable to make judgements on whether or not to blindly follow the advice of people t they don't know, have never seen, and whose success or failure they have no way verifying is insulting to them at best.

    No reasonable person would blindly follow the advice of such a person.

    Despite the alleged concern you have for newcomers the name calling you resort to in threads such as this one and "21st Century Snake Oil" are generally indicators of weak support for one's assertions at best, and bad faith at worst.

    Other than your addiction to the word pejorative….that you managed to misspell all three times in the same post…..there isn’t anything worthy of comment.
