I did. Mites were my #1, 2 and 3 priority. Apivar strips went in immediately, then OAV series in the fall and one OAV in December. 0 mites registering right now. I really like Apivar in early spring followed by OAV series in fall.
Don't forget about late fall (late Sept, October)- robbing season. That's the one that catches people by surprise. It comes from drift or other colonies failing around you. You can go from a low count to HIGH numbers in a matter of days.
