Re: Hands off Beekeeping.....for the most part.
I have one three visit yard.
1. Spring inspection, place supers and supered bait hives.
2. Harvest and place Apivar.
3. Remove Apivar.
I should use Formic Pro and get it down to two visits a year. Or leave the Apivar in for four months.
If loses are bad there is a bring new colony trip.
All of my opinions and suggestions are based on my five decades of actual beekeeping,
not so much on book learning, watching YouTube videos nor reading internet sites.
