The use of fumigant strips containing 200 mg of bromopropylate to control varroa in honey bees

, : The use of fumigant strips containing 200 mg of bromopropylate to control varroa in honey bees. Medycyna Weterynaryjna 47(9): 412-413

The efficacy of bromopropylate fumigant strips to control Varroa jacobsoni in honey bee colonies was evaluated. The level of Varroa infestation was determined before and after fumigation using bees anaesthetized with ether. Colonies were free of brood before the first fumigation. Fumigations were done 2 times at 4-day intervals, using one strip each time. The trials showed a 77.5-100.0% field efficacy after two treatments.
