    Apivar is used widely in New Zealand.

    Treatment period of 10 to 12 weeks, works very well with no problems so far.

    Apivar comes in strip form and is applied 2 strips per brood box

    Just to add that a comment was made that Apivar kills the mite directly when from what I've read Amitraz causes paralysis in the mite, it falls off the bee and starves to death.

    Here's another link with lots of info http://www.apivar.co.nz/FAQs.htm

    Amitraz is the chemical ingredient in Apivar, so action on the mites is the same.

    I realise that Mgolden thats why I mentioned that the mite dies from starvation due to paralysis rather than being killed on the bee and falling off as was alluded too in one of the posts
