Re: Mite monitoring in TF hives
Iíve been pondering counting vs not also. One friend says it will make my selections for breeding stock data based... But since I have such a small yard Iím not sure that just choosing my three best overall hives and going from there doesnít make as much sense ó and putting the time Iíd spend counting into additional nucs and hives...
Have been reading about mite suppression vs tolerance and given what new viruses are likely to arrive in the future, suppression seems most important to me (though both are obviously needed as Webster discusses in that link ó thanks for that MB.
