Dosage and the method of administration

For use in a bee-hive.
The package should be opened directly before use. Take out the impregnated strips from the packet, then place it perpendicularly on the top of the frames above the brood.
In a vertically modular bee hive the strips should be placed always on the top of the frames of (upper) brood box. The ventilation should be secured around the strips therefore they should not be covered directly. In case of a cover with folio, a spacer should be placed next to the strips between the frame and the folio, in order to keep away the folio from the strips.
The number of strips which should be placed in the bee-hive is at least one, but not more than three, and it is determined by the type of the bee-hive and the size of the colony according to the recommendation below. The strip(s) should be kept in the bee-hive for 45 days. During the treatment the number of times and durations when the hive is open should be kept at the minimum, in order to maintain the concentration of the active substance in the bee-hive.

  • 1 bee-hive strip in case of a smaller colony
  • 2 bee-hive strips for bigger colonies

The strip(s) should be removed at the first inspection in spring.
