Was wondering what my fellow hobbyist beeks do for varroa treatments? I am not to into chemicals, but have been using SBB, EO's and powdered sugar dusting.

Also curious about fall treatments for wintering, I only have one hive, so with that what is worth/not worth doing.
What do you 'small time' guys do?

I'm using open screen bottom board, occasional grease patties with wintergreen oil etc, and culling some of the drone frame capped drone brood.

So far we haven't done anything but sugar. Lost one of 2 hives in the spring. You need to know what you're mite levels are before considering treatment.
