Apivar Strips use Amatraz, a synthetic pesticide to kill varroa mites. Hang two strips per brood chamber between frames. Leave the strips for 42 days and remove them. Apivar is most effectively used before the honey flow or after honey supers are removed. Honey supers must remain off the hive during the 42-day treatment period and for 14 days after strips are removed.
Treatment is not recommended unless you know that your varroa mite count is in excess of the treatment threshold.
