    This was posted on the Welcome page by a new member. (Thanks Bob Fortner!) Looks interesting as biological control for varroa.

    It’s been in circulation for a couple years now (your vid link was released in 2015). The draw back is the good mites live in media, rather shy and won’t tend to circulate in the hive.
    There’s been a few folks that wanted to order them here, haven’t heard any follow up.
