What is VarroMed and what is it used for?

VarroMed is a medicine used to treat varroosis in honey bee colonies. Varroosis is a disease of honey bees caused by infestation with a parasite called Varroa mite (Varroa destructor). The Varroa mite feeds on the haemolymph (blood) of adult bees and on brood (developing stages of the honey bee) resulting in damage and / or death of bees; the mite can also help spread of viruses and bacteria. A significant mite infestation can lead to the collapse of a honey bee colony. VarroMed can be used on colonies with and without brood.

VarroMed contains the active substances oxalic acid dihydrate and formic acid.

How is VarroMed used?

VarroMed is available as a bee-hive dispersion (a liquid for use inside the bee hive) and can be obtained without a prescription.
