Formic Pro - 10 Pack
Cat #194 PRO
Formic Pro is the latest generation of certified organic varroa mite treatments brought to us from the same people that produce Mite Away Quick Strips. Using the same natural ingredients found in MAQS, they have updated the formula to produce a longer shelf life (24 months) and extended treatment periods (14 or 20 days) to produce a more effective mite treatment.
Treatment consists of simply laying the strips across the frames for 14 days (2 strips) or 20 days (1 strip each 10 days) with the daytime temperatures of 50-85 degrees F. Leave it on the hive for the bees to dispose of or the strips can be removed and composed.
Note: Do not remove the papery wick around the gel. This product cannot be shipped outside the US.
What is Formic Acid:
Formic acid is naturally occurring component in honey that, when properly formulated, can not only kills adult Varroa mites but also kills 95% of the mites incubating under the cappings. Since it can be found naturally in honey, formic acid treatments can be applied during honey flow and leaves no residue.
