Chris you mention two things in your post - varroa treatment and also nutrition. Firstly what has changed with regard to your varroa treatment and secondly, would you consider yourself in a location where pollen sources are low which is why you need to help out with suppliment?
I went from one treatment per year in winter to two and three treatments per year.
As for forage, no I didn't think I was but the supplimentary pollen feed certainly dramatically increases the numbers of bees in a box coming out of winter.
I would add that some sites I thought were excellent, small apiaries and lots of water courses , rough ground and small villages with nice gardens located near by.
