Varroa mites (external parasite) are a destructive pest that has no place in your hive. Kick them out with Apigaurd, a thymol-based miticide suitable for natural use. A 10 pack will treat 5 hives. Need a larger quantity? Apiguard is also available as a 6.6 lb. pail (30 hives)

Simple to use. Remove the foil lid and place the container on top of the frames in your hive. After two weeks, remove the first container and apply a second dose for another two weeks.
