i sure hope that im not alone in saying that information is hard if not impossible to find or get out of companies
having said that ill start with this - we treat and hope that the makers have done the testing ...but have they??? if so where are the reports? there findings?
so for instance -- if i test a hive and find 5 mites per 300 bees - and i treat with say apiguard .... how long before for i do a post test ? a day,a week, month ??
if i test for nosema and treat -- how long do i wait to test that hive again ??? to see if what i used even worked???
if i test for mites and decide to dust with sugar - how long do i wait to test ??? 30 minutes or 3 days???
so can you see more then just the tip of the ice berg???
i think as beekeepers its our right to know this information - but yet NO COMPANY gives out this info??? why ?? i think its just because they really dont know either -
i have to say that Randy Oliver is about the only one - but even then ive not found a true date to post test
anyone else finding this ???
