Re: Apistan Vs. ApiGaurd, I need to treat, old timers......which is best?
WHAT A PATHETIC THREAD!!!
Oh my God. Am I the last beekeeper standing that understands how to determine efficacy of a treatment?
Do we just "treat a hive" and see if it is still alive in spring?
Is that a blueprint for scientific beekeeping sucsess?
Here is the first question that folks need to answer that attemt to succsessfully over winter bees:
Am I a serious bee keeper, or a dabbler?
Stop fiddling and listening to , "( Joe told Bill that helped Mike that believed Sally that.....")
Efficacy testing is the answer. I am not here to promote a product, but google it.
If you do not have a clear procedure for determining efficacy of the products used, you are shooting in the dark.
If you do not know how to asses the results of your actions you are lost.
I could spoon feed you my results but that would not advance you as a beekeeper.
Your homework assignment: "efficacy testing"
I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
That makes my opinion beyond dispute!
