    Default Varroa exponential growth

    For those who need a picture of Varroa's growth if left unattended, see https://graphics.reuters.com/HEALTH-...438/index.html

    Yes, it is an article about Coronavirus, not varroa. And not starting any debate about that virus. But the curves are similar, and I think it helps show why testing and timely response is key for varroa control.

    Takeaway: If you have a little varroa, you have a big problem if your response is inadequate.

    Again, not put here for any discussion about the human disease. Let's not go there.
    So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

    The implications of "exponential" seem to be something a lot of people don't entirely comprehend.

    Blessedly, my bees seem to have been positively impacted by so called “stochastic” host-parasite interactions and external perturbations on the dynamics of infection and transmission sans treatment, at least so far.
