Field trials on the control of Varroa jacobsoni with Folbex-VA-NEU and biotechnical methods at a bee-farm in Tunisia



Field trials on the control of Varroa jacobsoni with Folbex-VA-NEU and biotechnical methods at a bee-farm in Tunisia



Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 96: 239-241



V.jacobsoni was first reported in Tunisia in July 1978; at the end of 1980, in an apiary 60 km from Tunis, 600 of the 1200 colonies were found to be infested. Folbex-VA-Neu (isopropyl dibromobenzilate) was used for treatment, with 4 daily applications. Three methods of application were tested on groups of 10 brood-free colonies. The best method, which killed over 96% mites on average, was to burn 1 Folbex strip in a special apparatus put inside the hive.P.
