A bee's best defense
against the Varroa mite.

A Weapon in Varroa Mite Control.

It is important to monitor hives periodically for mite infestations
as part of good management practices.

Apistan® Anti-Varroa Strips

Apistan® was the first commercially available mite control product; it’s hard on mites but easy on bees. Apistan® controls mites as bees come in contact with the strip. Featuring the active ingredient tau-fluvalinate, Apistan® strips provide up to 8 weeks of control. When the bees interact within the strip, the active ingredient is released to control mites. Apistan® protects the whole hive from the Varroa mites.

  • Convenient, easy to apply strips.
  • Easy-to-follow, four-step application.
  • tau-Fluvalinate is released at a constant, controlled rate, targeting Varroa as they emerge from brood cells.
  • Won’t harm bees.

Always read and follow label directions.
