Millers Homestead LLC is a one stop beekeeping supply house. We have a complete inventory of wooden ware,
foundations, protective clothing, and package honey bees in the spring.
They have a complete in-house lab facility to assist in determining the health of your honey bees. .
Jim teaches beekeeping class with the local association,
West Plains Beekeepers Association of Medical Lake.
For the past several years Millers has been treating their hives with essential oils.
The essential oils have been fed to the honey bees through sugar water and food patties.
Over the last few years they have developed flower beds that have attracted the honey bees.
These beds have assisted in the reduction of varroa mites in the hive.
The daily mite drop test was zero for 99% of the hives. One hive had a daily average of 3.
