Eco guard anti varroa strips – 50 strips in 5 packs
Amitraz/Apitraz analog but with eco active ingredients.
Eco guard strips are an environmentally friendly medicinal acaricidal preparation in the form of peeled veneer plates.
The active ingredient contains:
Essential oils of thyme, wormwood, coriander, and mint oil with a high menthol content.
The essential oils that makeup EcoGuard have a pronounced acaricidal and repellent effect against varroatosis, acarapidosis and wax moth.
When using Eco guard, not only the above diseases are eliminated, but also other microorganisms pathogenic for bees.
The use of EcoGard does not lead to the emergence of resistant populations of ticks.
Method of application and dosage
Bee colonies are treated with Eco guard in the spring (after the first examination of the colonies of bees) and in the summer-autumn period (after pumping out the honey) by placing strips of the preparation in the hives. Eco guard is used at the rate of 2 strips for 10-12 nest frames. In weak families, one strip is suspended between the 3rd and 4th cell frames, in a strong one – one strip between the 3rd and 4th cells, the second – between the 7th and 8th cell frames. For small families and cores (6 frames), one strip in the center of the nest is enough. Leave in the nest for 3 to 30 days, depending on the amount of printed brood, the nesting, and the intensity of the mite shedding. At the same time, one should take into account the longer prolonged action of EcoGard due to the nature of the evaporation of essential oils, i.e. the concentration of the active substance in the nest remains much longer.
If the strips are not very tight and the strips are used for a short time, after removing them from the hive, they should be sealed and reused if necessary. To fix the strip, you can use a paper clip through which a hairpin (a wooden twig, a piece of thin wire) is threaded and the strip is placed vertically exactly in the center of the street (in its middle part) between the two frames of the bee’s nest.
Open packaging only before handling bees. There are no side effects and complications in bees when using Eco guard in accordance with the instructions. Long-term use of Eco guard does not lead to the emergence of resistant populations of ticks. Honey from bee colonies treated with EcoGard is used on a general basis.
Wooden strips of Eco guard are hermetically packed in polyethylene and foil bags, 10 pcs in each.
Storage In a dry, dark place, out of the reach of children, separately from food and feed, at a temperature of 5 ° C to 25 ° C.
