Apiguard is one of two soft treatments we recommend for Varroa Mites. The active ingredient is Thymol* (Oil of Thyme) and it does an excellent job of knocking down mites, especially in the fall. Treatment is convenient: add one tray above the top bars (using a shim or empty super for spacing,) after 14 days pull out the empty tray and add another for a second 14 days. Apply when daytime temperatures are between 60 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. DO NOT USE WHEN HONEY SUPERS ARE ON.
Comes in packs of 10, enough for 5 hives. (Sorry, we can't sell trays individually.)
[*Thymol is the same active ingredient in ApiLifeVar]
