The point of this website is to collate information about Varroa biology, controls and treatments. I want to understand how to cope with Varroa.
My participation in the ReViVe project requires that I do not treat or control for Varroa. This does not mean leaving them entirely alone. I will continue to monitor the two hives for mite drop and for other bee diseases. I probably won't use the more invasive methods of swarm control. I will hopefully take some of the surplus honey.
This is a deliberate decision not to treat or control. It feels like quite a bold step.
