Chemical control of Varroa jacobsoni. 1. Screening tests of acaricides on V. jacobsoni and toxicity of 5 acaricides to Apis mellifera



Chemical control of Varroa jacobsoni. 1. Screening tests of acaricides on V. jacobsoni and toxicity of 5 acaricides to Apis mellifera



Phytopathologist and Entomologist, National Taiwan University: 78-83



In a survey of 52 apiaries, Varroa jacobsoni was found in all of them. Topical toxicity tests on honeybees were carried out in the laboratory using 51% Gubitol, 27% Acarthane, 25.5% Folbex (chlorobenzilate), 35% dicofol and 50% Plictran, and the acaricides were also tested in the infested apiaries. Gubitol was the least toxic to adult worker bees and is recommended for use in apiaries (it is O,O-diethyl-O-(3-chloro-4-methyl-7-coumarinyl)-phosphorothioate).
