Control of the mite Varroa jacobsoni in hives in Israel by using formic acid


Hassadeh 66(10): 2117-2120
Control of the mite Varroa jacobsoni in hives in Israel by using formic acid
The control method used was as follows: from 15 to 25 ml formic acid (85%) were poured on cotton wool in a plastic petri dish that was placed on top of the brood frames in the hive. Space for the dish was provided by placing a wooden frame, 5 cm high, between the top of the hive box and the cover. Eleven colonies which were weak and infested with Varroa were used to test the method. Before the first treatment, the hives were inspected and mites were seen infesting the bees.
