Varroa Mites: To Treat or Not to Treat

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Cornucopia’s Take: Many beekeepers treat their hives with miticides every year to kill Varroa mites, parasites that feed on developing bees. Some beekeepers suspect that if beekeepers did not treat them, bees would evolve to live with Varroa mites, producing a hardier bee. The interviews in this video begin about 30 seconds in, and offer first-hand accounts from beekeepers who keep feral bees, evolved to live with Varroa mites, and do not treat.
