    :scratch:
    he just stated the obvious, increase of treatments at lower numbers of mites. Where will it end?
    Perhaps he should mention that we bred bees without an immune system because of the...

    Re: Do I really need to medicate?

    article in november 2018 bees magazine:

    How much we have bred in the last decades in the direction of strong mites is shown, among other things, by the ever-increasing damage threshold:
    In 1980,...
  11. Re: Relative Mite Counts in a Treatment-Free Context

    They detect the mites by stress symtoms of the sisters and hormones send out from the attacked pupa.

    These beliefs are pessimistic and do not lead to an improvement.
    They intimidate and prevent beekeepers from doing anything themselves.

    I call a sucess to have any survivors at all in some...

    Re: Do I really need to medicate?

    There are many here too, mostly very small hobbyists. Most of them do "live and let die". MB is correct about this.
    But there is no advance. Because of the high losses this beeks are not considered....
  15. Re: Relative Mite Counts in a Treatment-Free Context

    The flooding with drones will not work, because I canīt have so many hives and my locations are flooded by weak genetics.
    My aim is to work with others as a group to find an isolated mating place,...

    Re: Do I really need to medicate?

    The time window is spring to summer, the measures must then be completed so that the bees can prepare undisturbed for the winter and store the supplies.
