The control of Varroa jacobsoni (Acari: Gamasida) by means of organic acids

Apiacta 31(2): 51-54
The control of Varroa jacobsoni (Acari: Gamasida) by means of organic acids
Infested Apis mellifera colonies, in Buenos Aires state, Argentina, were treated with 15% lactic acid or 60% formic acid. The treatments, which were carried out in July and August (winter) when the colonies had brood, were repeated a further 3 times during the next 2 weeks.
