Planting thyme plants to prevent varroa mites, does it work?

Will planting Thyme plants around hives help prevent verroa mites from taking over?

No. Sorry! Thymol inside the hive is very much more concentrated than the few volatiles that are exuded from thyme plants in the soil. Nice idea, but doesn’t work.
