I am a seasoned beekeeper who helped a dear friend set up a hive this spring. Everything has gone exceptionally well.
However, we treated her hive for Varroa Mites 8 weeks ago using Apivar as instructed and how I have 100% successfully used in the past. We treated with Apivar for 6 weeks, waited two weeks and retested her hive. Her hive went from 3% mites up to 6% mite load.
My question here is what can we safely treat her hive with now since we just finished the last treatments two weeks ago.
