Dadant & Son’s Is Now An Approved Distributor of Apivar

Posted On: December 20, 2012

North American beekeepers now have an effective new amitraz-based weapon against Varroa mites: Apivar
→ Kills up to 99% of mites in one application
→ Continuously-released in the colony over a six-week period, ensuring healthy and productive hives
→ Proven safe and effective for more than 15 years
→ Leaves no significant residues in hive products
→ Convenient and easy to use


APIVAR DRAMATICALLY CUTS MITE POPULATION

A study1 conducted by the research arm of the USDA in the spring of 2012 shows that Apivar® was responsible for a 52-fold drop in mite population compared to an untreated hive. This demonstrates the effectiveness of Apivar’s controlled-release technology.

APIVAR STRIPS SAVE TIME AND EFFORT

Apivar is packaged in vacuum-sealed foil pouches that each contain 10 strips. A single application of two strips per brood chamber is sufficient to treat a hive, so you spend less ti me and effort treating your bees, and there is less disruption of the bees than with many other treatments.
