- Based on amitraz – a sub-lethal miticide: paralyzes varroa mites – leading to their starvation.
- Continuously delivered to the honey bees via the strip, over a minimum six-week period.
- Works by contact only, so it is very important to position the strips in an area of high bee activity, typically in the brood area.
--- Practical reality trumps philosophy!
