Hi Tony,

I just found your videos this morning. Great work!

I am a new beekeeper from Canada. I have training in essential oil usage, so when I came across some of your videos and saw your use of them against Varroa Mites, I just had to email you. What has been your experience to date with EO’s with the bees? Has it remained effective against infestations?

Thanks for your time.

    Hi Cindy,

    You must be referring to some older videos as I had to inevitably confront Varroa more agressively. The most recent videos are from 2015 and 14 and they show results of using Thymol. i also experimented with Formic Acid but found that to be too strong. It’sa fine blance but the mites are a horrible burden on an already overwhelemed species. The downside is not taking honey as a precaution to the times when less that organic means are used to quell the Varroa destructor. That’s what we call it down here. Good luck, learn a lot and have a joy. Tony
