Formic Pro is a treatment for the control of the Varroa destructor mite in honey bees. Varroa mites are parasites that weaken honey bees and transmit viruses to the colony. They reproduce quickly, hidden from view, under the brood cap. Colony infestation levels of the virus can grow and spread rapidly, weakening the bees and rendering them unable to survive. Proactive parasite control is the best way to ensure the health and safety of your hive.
Formic Pro gel strips contain a slow-release formula that controls parasite infestation. Place the treatment on top of the lower brood chamber for either a 14- or 20-day treatment period to keep your honey bees healthy.
