  1. Diseases and Pests
    Hello, I watched a video of Ralph Buchler and read some of his articles on treating for varroa mites. I like his idea of total brood removal 2 weeks before the end of the flow with a trapping comb and oxalic acid dribbling afterwards. I think this might be better than caging as I would like to...

  7. Treatment-Free Beekeeping
