Borax--I've read a lot about it, and lately. I forget some of it now...but recall the gist of it. And feel it does much more than we know. good stuff.
and good luck!!!
What about olive leaf powder? Can youget the leaves from somewhaer? This taken internally and then sprinkled. (?)
Barefoot (ask Barefoot) has on his site a picture (ask him)
of bees, in February, I think it was--coming awake to fly to his olive-leaf grinding machine...Mind-blowing. Heart-warming.
It made me want to be a bee-healer--going hive to hive with the olive leaf powder. The bees were desperate to get at it.
