    I belong to an AMM breeding group up here in the North-East. We thought we’ve found a beekeeper-free site in the Cabrach for our mating apiary - but it turned out we’re not alone.

    There just might be somebody near your Varroa-free site as well.

    "Personally I wouldn't trust any combination of treatments to make the hive mite-free". I agree!

    It's also the case that you never know where another colony is - kept or wild.
    Drones and queens can travel quite a distance to mate too..
