Apiguard - is a natural product to control varroa in honeybee colonies. Tests show that it also helps to control tracheal mites and chalkbrood.
We currently have available trays of Apiguard at the cost of 2.30 per tray to our members
Single trays (Two are required per colony)
Place the opened tray face upwards in the top of brood frames, preferably centred over the colony

After 10 days examine the tray and if it is almost empty, replace with a second tray. If there is product left in the tray after 10 days leave until day 14 and then replace.

Leave the second tray in position for a further 2-4 weeks and treatment has been completed (duration of treatment therefore lasts 4-6 weeks).

Apiguard works best in temperatures above 15C. But it is also effective at lower temperatures even though the gel takes longer to evaporate and the gel needs to be left in place for longer.
