Got a bad case of varroa? Mite-Away is a biopesticide that is effective at reducing your colony's mite population. The core of these strips is a plant-based gel that contains formic acid. Since the strip is thinner than the height of a bee, it easily fits into the bee space between frames and boxes, making it painless to apply. Two strips per hive is recommended.
