Varroa Treatment 2017

 

The time has come... Honey harvest is mostly done, colonies are very slowly starting preparations for the winter and beekeepers should start thinking about helping them to go into this dificult period as healthy and strong as possible which means also Varroa free.

For this purpose Brian has Api Life Var and Apiguard available fot treatment for our colonies.

If your hives are onan HBKA apiary site then treatment must be started before the end of August. Treatments are either 4 weeks or 6 weeks depending upon choice of treatment.

This year Varroa levels are very high in some cases and evidence has been seen with malformed bees.
