Checkmite being sold in individual strips without lot number or exp. date

608 0

Checkmite is coumaphos, A cholinesterase inhibitor type insecticide used to kill varroa but also approved for control of small hive beetles.

It is sold in 10-paks for $40, this year.

This company sells strips of check mite, off label without, without a lot number or the date the 10-pack was opened.

This product has a limited shelf life.

I bought one strip to use in a beetle barn(s) to control shb, and received the one strip wrapped in handiwrap.

I have written this company twice to inquire lot number and Date opened info with no response.

I suggest one avoid this merchant because you have no idea the condition, quality or effectiveness of what is being sold.
