Natural Way to Control Varroa Mites

I am a big subscriber and believer in the Fat Bee Man.  I am now adding mineral oil to my oxalic acid vapor treatment which causes the treatment to stick to the bee and become more effective.  However, it appears just using pure mineral oil can work effectively making this the most natural treatment I have found for these pests.  Watch and learn.  Would appreciate your comments and ideas as well!
