Suitability of the prepration TCL (amitraz) for the field control of varroasis of honey bees

Suitability of the prepration TCL (amitraz) for the field control of varroasis of honey bees

Medycyna Weterynaryjna 38(8/9): 450-453

A study was carried out in Poland to determine the suitability of amitraz (TCL) for the control of Varroa jacobsoni Oudm. infesting bees in apiaries. Bees were examined before treatment and again 6 days (or sometimes oftener) after treatment. Bees in frames inside and outside the hive were sprayed once or twice with amitraz at a rate of 250 ml/family. The effectiveness of a single application after 6 days was 89% and that of 2 sprayings was 92-100%.
