Re: Mites zapped by laser frame
Not posting this to knock the idea that some sort of electronic gadget might be able to control varroa but I’m far from convinced that this is workable. I would question their claim of a 90% detection rate of varroa on bees as I believe most phoretic varroa tend to burrow in between the body segments of bees to escape bees grooming tendencies and that this might just further select for those tendencies. I’ve come to the conclusion that varroa are pretty stealthy and when you begin to see them, you’ve already got a serious problem.
Had to chuckle at their use of the mythical and unproven quote of Albert Einstein as a lead in to their website. I guess when it’s repeated often enough it gets generally accepted.
