Not sure that it works very well anymore. I hadn't used it in years and did a cpl years ago and still had mites showing soon after. But I'd sell you the ones I haven't used if you want them. Cheap. Save me from tossing them out.

Mite-Away Quick Strips (can be used with a super on), Apiguard, and Oxalic Acid when broodless, or nearly so. No Apistan, or Checkmite. Mites have developed resistance, and these are persistent chemicals that remain in the wax. I won't use these.

>What would you recommend using Michael?

No. But I wouldn't recommend using anything. Still that would not even be on the list of anything worth considering IF you were going to treat.

1) it costs money
2) it contaminates the wax
3) it poisons the bees
4) it does not work

There is no positive in the list...
