10 x Apivar Strips
The rigid Apivar® strips release just the right amount of active substance where it is needed, when it is needed.
The manufacturing process used to produce these strips guarantees that just the right amount of active miticide, Amitraz, is released when and where it is needed. Slow-release Apivar® treatment contains just the right amount of product to eliminate varroa mites without any risk of toxicity for the bees or any danger of residues accumulating in hive products. The active substance is released simply when the bees come into contact with the strip.
Thanks to the progressive and measured release of the active substance from the unique Apivar®formulation, your hive is healthy and its products are free from contamination.
Moreover after successive Apivar® treatments for several years, no accumulation of Amitraz residues can be noticed even in wax.
