I am going to ask a dumb Newbee question and hope I don't set off a fire storm. I am going to start a new bee yard on some property I have and after surviving a mite bomb in August (well, hopefully stay tuned for March) would like to buy some VSH stock (nuc's or Queens). Now as I understand it, the VSH lines will for the most part, clean out Varroa and other pest to a higher degree than say commercially available strains. When my mite bomb(s) hit in August, I fought back with Formic pads and then OAV'd the hive the following month with another shot last week due to heavy warm weather activity. With VSH bees and observation, will I need to do any treatment should observations show any serious levels of mite? I mean in an ideal world I'd like to be TF but on the other hand, I'm just not into killing stuff if theirs a way to save them. I think it was JW Palmer who used the term "Bond" regarding some hives he had which I was unfamiliar with and through some reading, the live and let die thing came out. Kinda cold-do you have to be "cruel to be kind"? I'd like to introduce VSH into the new yard and eventually into my original yard through queen rearing and splits. Are VSH "fire and forget" or is an IPM practice part of it?
