Even though I am a treatment free beekeepers myself. After testing a 87 in a beekeepers test (6 out of 7 I missed were treatment related) I thought to myself how important it was for me to learn. As much as we all hate it. Treating is a big part of the standard industry in beekeeping.
I always encourage new keepers to start with treatments. I really think success and a certain degree of skill is needed before attempting treatment free.
This post is to discuss treatments. The more detailed the better. Experiences. What has worked for you. How you apply. Problems or concerns.
