    I'm curious if anyone has tried to use oil of oregano to treat bees for any bacterial diseases (ex.foulbroods), or even varroa. I have recently learned that at least in humans it is a natural antibiotic. I'm wondering if some occasional droplets in my provided water source could have any positive impact on prevention, or treatment of bacterial diseases. Maybe even some drops in the hive for mites or hive beetles? Anyone try the use of oregano?

    I use a little in my sugar blocks. I believe it helps with nosema.

    I haven't tried it for treating nosema but I've used oregano for cough relief
