Announcing a new weapon in our arsenal to battle the Varroa Mite. In January of 2011 the Mite Away Quick Strip (tm) should be available in North America. Working with beekeepers all over the world, this new strip formulation of formic acid not only kills adult Varroa mites but also kills 95% of the Varroa under the cappings. Treatment consists of simply laying the strips across the frames for only 7 days with daytime temperatures of 50-92 degrees F. No residues and it can be applied during a honey flow. Leave it on the hive for the bees to dispose of or the strips can be removed and composted.
