Apiguard

HVTAG

Apiguard is thymol in a slow-release gel used to control varroa mites in honeybee colonies.

Thymol is derived from thyme oil and is an approved organic treatment.
Apiguard works both as a fumigant and by contact, 2 trays per treatment as per box instructions.

To ensure optimal efficacy we recommend placing a spacer on top of the brood box where the trays are placed. This creates more space to enable the bees to contact the gel.

Sold as individual 50g trays, in boxes of 10 x 50g trays , and in multiples of 10 trays.

OR

3kg tubs - comes with a measuring scoop and cardboard squares to place treatment on.
(Enough gel for 30 treatments @ 2x50g treatments).

Some important points to consider regardless of what treatment you are using:

  • Alternate your treatments. (Apistan and Bayvarol cannot be alternated as the chemicals used are too similar).
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions i.e. use the correct number of strips/trays and the correct timeframe for the treatment, (this will help reduce the likelihood of developing resistant mites).
  • Handle the treatment carefully e.g. wear chemical gloves when handling and other protective items i.e respirator (depending on the treatment being used).
  • Monitor your hive before and after the treatment. If the mite levels are high, 2 weeks after removing the treatment, there are a number of reasons why this may have happened, (Fiona's powerpoint explains the possible reasons in more detail).
