Okay I finally set myself down and wadded through the options for treating bees. So far this list contains only chemical treatments so feel free to add others. Mainly I am trying to get ready for fall and want to get everything I need in one order. Here are the choices I have found. (per content below) Don't order any treatments ahead of time without actually needing them- such things have expiration dates. SHB, Beetle blaster or other similar trap. Several home made traps of various design. soil treatments to kill larva. FULL sun and traps. Diatomaceus earth or wood ashes on the ground (added per content below) I have read this and actually prefer it. Not sure why I didn't think to list it. Varroa mite (Do your checks first, then treat when a problem is found per several posts below) Check Mite plus. I am not encouraged by the resistance developed to this product Mite Away 2. still not impressed. Strikes me as another choice mites will be resistant too if they are not already. Api Life Var, Thymol strips. Long treatment period )21 days requiring a specific temp range that will be difficult for me to meet. temp varies more than these limits in 12 hours here. IT can be 60 at night and 100 during the day. Vaporized Oxalic Acid. (Use as finisher per content below) According to fatbeemans video on this it works for both Varroa and Tracheal mites. I have not been able to confirm this though. Also fatbeeman it is 100% effective. I also have not been able to verify this. So far my top choice. Fast and effective if claims are accurate. sucromid (added per content of post below) I don't have any details as to this product. Tracheal mite Possibly vaporized Oxalic Acid (Not confirmed by further content int eh discussion. Mite A Thol. I am hoping Oxalic Acid works on varroa rather than having to use this. (Per Perrybee) Formic acid, menthol boards, good genetics in your bees. I thought I would give this one it's own line. I also suggest you read his whole post. IN fact most of the posts are good. Perrybee just gets to the point well. Nosema, Fumagilin B so far seems to me the only game in town. but then again I am only starting to find my way through the woods. Other problems such as foulbrood I don't intend to treat for unless I find it in the hive. I would really like to know if I can get by with Oxalic Acid vaporization, Fumagilin-B and beetle traps. Thanks folks and I appreciate any additional suggestions on how to keep the bad guys out of my bees. Important addition on the issue of resistance. Please take this seriously. It is well known that many of the parasites of the hive are already developing resistance to treatments. resistance to any application or process is inversely related to the effectiveness of the treatment. thus treatments that report 99% effective rate are also the quickest for the predator to gain resistance. ie.... you killed all those effected and only those that are not affected breed to make the next generation of predators. I will add that at least two of the products for Varroa mites list only a 95% kill rate. For this reason alone I reject them. the above comment explains why. As they said. 99% is not nearly good enough. Next time you will kill zero.
