Perfect for the small hobbyist beekeeper! No more splitting 10 packs or worrying about how to store unused doses!

This is the first mite treatment which can be used during the honeyflow. Place two pads on top of brood frames when temperatures are between 50 and 85 degrees F. There are treatments for 2 hives in this package. Treatment period is 7 days. Pads do not need to be removed at end of treatment, but we recommend taking them out at the end of treatment period. Entrances should not be restricted or reduced during treatment. Screened bottom boards will not interfere significantly with product effectiveness. Use chemical resistant gloves and read and follow all label directions when using Mite Away Quick Strips.

Using MAQS on a hive often leads to some dead bees and/or brood in front of the hive.  Treatment is not recommended unless you know that your varroa mite count in excess of your treatment threshold.  

For some information on checking for mites, see Randy Oliver's website: http://scientificbeekeeping.com/fighting-varroa-reconnaissance-mite-sampling/
