LostCoast and WVMike, thanks for the replies and sensible guidance. I don't blame beekeepers from being wary, after all we have many litigious people here in America. I'm still looking into it, and will be sure to prepare my treatment properly with epi pen in hand, tools and etcetera. We had a scarily large bee hive in our oak tree in the front yard, I think we got some wax honey combs from it, didn't know about BVT then. I remember the droning buzzing hive was mesmerizing, they had all swarmed to that one part of the tree, and the number of bees was more than I had ever seen up close.
