I opened my first package of Apivar and it looks just like a plain piece of dry hard plastic. No moisture, no smell, nothing. Is this how it comes? After using Hop guard, I guess I expected messy or at least some moisture coating.
I was almost disappointed I didn't find mites in most of my hives..LOL. Wanted to give Apivar a try to see how well it worked. The two hives I did install them in had a mite drop of about 15-20 total mites on the whole bottom board in 24 hours. We'll see as the brood uncappes how many accumulate.
