Regular sugar dusting will take care of the phoretic mites inside the hive.
Drone cell culling will take care of some mites in the drone brood.
hopefully all 3 solutions used in a consistent fashion would be enough to keep the mites at bay
It's unfortunate that I had to deal with some posters in a manner that I did not like from myself. I expected more professional behavior and more open mindedness.Also, as far as getting pissed off at your fellow posters, take it as a challenge and prove them wrong. People laughed at and made fun of Edison, Tesla and the Wright Brothers just to name a few. Are you up to the challenge?
LOL.... but you'll be surprised if the DOD already has something like that.I came up with a high tech idea a few years back but nobody jumped on it and patented it. My idea was to place computer controlled mini lasers in the hive that have sensors to find mites on the individual bees. When it senses a mite, the lasers zaps the mite and saves the bee. It would cost millions to develop but I am sure some young computer genius could make it work.
