By feeding a recipe tea tree essential oil to bees to kill deadly mites, we are giving bees a fighting chance to survive. In recent years a number of beekeepers have turned to essential oils to control the ravages of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Varroa mites are literally killing whole bee hive colonies. The anti-fungal and antibiotic properties of tea tree essential oil can either kill, or adversely affect the reproduction cycle of varroa mites.
Don The Fat Bee Man shows how much the bees like his essential oil formula that he gives them to kill the mites that honeybees get. That is amazing how much they seem to like those oils. If you have bees and want to kill mites this looks like it may be the way to do it.
Please watch the video below to see the essential oil recipe created to be fed to bees (they love it) that will kill the deadly mites that are attached to the bees. Bees need our help to survive and we need bees to cross pollinate our growing fruits and vegetables.
