Effect of varroatin on queen honeybees

Effect of varroatin on queen honeybees

Veterinariya, Moscow, USSR (1): 68-71

In applications in hives to prevent Varroa infestations, 12 sprayings with an aerosol preparation of varroatin over the first 2 years of a queen's life did not affect her survival or egg-laying capacity. The sex ratio and development of the offspring remained unchanged. In contrast, phenothiazine applied as a smoke in 6 similar doses decreased the egg-laying capacity of queens and 8 doses killed one-third of queens.
