I'm sure this has been discussed but I couldn't find it in search!
I have a hive that has gone a year with no chemicals...the only possible treatment would have been pulling the queen and disrupting the cycle.
Big hive survived this ugly winter.
Got in it this weekend massive queen cells maybe the biggest I've ever seen. At least ten and one already open!
Tore open a lot of drone cells and no mites.
Does this hive qualify as VHS?
What are the qualifications?
