    8:16 Varroa Impact
    13:23 Origins of Varroa Mite, Apis Ceranae
    17:37 Varroa Family, Life Cycle
    27:13 Viruses
    30:19 Control Options, Pros & Cons
    43:52 Residues in Beeswax
    48:53 Beebread/Pollen

    55:25 Mite Sampling, Honey Bee Health Coalition
    59:52 Questions:
    59:57 I treated a hive of mine and left two supers on. I don’t plan on selling this honey, but I’m wondering if it’s safe for me to eat. What would you recommend?
    1:00:32 Does oxalic acid vaporization have a high mortality rate? I seem to lose or impair one queen a year after once a week treatments for 3 weeks. She is either killed outright or suffers a major decline in production. The mites are knocked down, so that is a plus.
    1:04:30 Some pesticide labels say to treat all colonies in your yard at the same time. If one looks at testing as a way of determining that treatment is NOT needed, IPM principals are turned on their head if a miticide is applied when testing of a specific hive is not needed. Thoughts?
    1:04:50 About how many Varroa mites emerge from a cell that will feed on another bee?
    1:05:35 What is the death rate of bees, using oxalic acid dribble please.
    1:07:10 Is it possible that a strong colony manages to get rid of varroa mites on its own? In other words, can you get lucky and not have any issues for years?
    1:08:20 I did not see FormicPro mentioned in your slides. Do you think its a safer treatment? Thank you
    1:09:40 I know there's been some research about whether Varroa viruses stick around within wax. Any idea what the research suggests?
    1:11:17 Your thoughts on heat treatments for mites.
    1:12:26 We find Thymol very effective in control what are your thoughts on its effectiveness and different delivery methods? We use several OX, Formic, and Thymol based on season/ temp but feel thymol is a great tool in the bag
    1:13:51 NY Bee Wellness provides appropriate education
    1:15:36 Please explain how mite treatments (like Mite Away strips) work to kill varoa mites and how the treatments can maintain the "organic" status of the honey in the supers.
    1:16:33 Some pesticide labels say to treat all colonies in your yard at the same time. If one looks at testing as a way of determining that treatment is NOT needed, IPM principals are turned on their head if a miticide is applied when testing of a specific hive is not needed. Thoughts?
    1:19:25 Will there ever be an RNAi control?
    1:20:57 How many times can a foundress mite enter a cell to lay eggs?
    1:22:29 Based on your report of the distance the mites can travel, do you think screen bottom boards would that drop the mites onto a stand would be that helpful - wouldn’t they just climb back up?
    1:23:22 What is your favorite mite treatment?

    I found Dr Jerry Hayes's response(1.00.32) to OAV very interesting. He does not recommend using it at all. If one uses OAV, then only do a one time treatment when hive is broodless/mostly broodless.

    This flys in the face of multiple 4-7 day treatments, monthly treatments, doses beyond 1 gram per 10 frame deep, etc.
