Control of varroa disease; systemic substances, integrated protection of honeybees

, : Control of varroa disease; systemic substances, integrated protection of honeybees. Mitteilungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft fur Allgemeine und Angewandte Entomologie 4(1/3): 26-28

The development in the German Federal Republic of control measures against Varroa jacobsoni is discussed, with particular reference to the need for integrated control measures to reduce the problem of chemical residues in honeybee colonies, and to the high level of effectiveness of systemic acaricides such as chlordimeform hydrochloride (K-79) and chlorobenzilate (Folbex).
