Your Newest Tool to Combat Varroa

Kill Varroa Mites Under the Cap

Independent studies show Formicpro is an effective treatment to kill mites under the brood cap—stopping the next generation of mites from reproducing in your colony.

Formicpro can kill up to 80% of immature mites [1,2]

TestApi 238-2015 Study: After treatment with Formicpro, less than 20% of the immature mites were alive, compared to almost 60% in the placebo group.[1]

Pajuelo Consultores Apicolas Study: Colonies treated with 2 strips of Formicpro had 50% fewer varroa under the cap 33 days after treatment, and 80% fewer by 53 days following treatment. In contrast, a group treated with amitraz showed an 85% increase in varroa under the cap at day 33, and only a 50% decrease by day 55, relative to initial levels. [2]

Sustainable and Extended Shelf-Life

Formicpro features a 24-month shelf-life that doesn’t require temperature-controlled storage. These key advancements in bee protection technology provide distributors and beekeepers with an additional effective treatment for Varroosis that’s safer and easier to use.

Formicpro is an all-natural product manufactured in ready-to-use polysaccharide gel strips that are fully biodegradable. Its eco-paper wrap is designed to provide a slow release of the active ingredient: formic acid. During the 7-day treatment period Formicpro causes mortality to a significant number of mites under the brood cap, as well as adult mites on the bees.
