Re: apivar and menthol
Well they are two totally different products. Or are you thinking of Api-life-var?
If you are thinking of Apivar, it could be used with menthol, although there would be no point, the Apivar will work fine without menthol. As a general rule with pest control IPM, you use one product targeted at a particular thing, at a time. That's because if you throw everything at them at the same time, when immunity happens you have nothing left.
If you are thinking of Api-life-var and menthol, they are both EO's so no harm in using them together, from an immunity point of view.
