I was speaking today with a man from California who is selling bottles of Bovitraz 12.5 % solution (Amitraz)and he makes his own strips to treat mites. Just wondering if anyone has heard of this or currently making their own Apivar style strips. He said that he sells to a lot of commercial guys in his area. 1 part Bovitraz to 6 parts vegetable oil. Apivar strips are expensive. His would be much much less expensive. I'm looking for comments from people who have experience with such a procedure.
