Apistan® is probably the best and simplest defence against the varroa mite. Since the 1980s it has been the benchmark treatment and is now registered for use in more than 40 countries. It is very easy to apply – simply insert two strips in the brood box of a standard colony for six weeks at the end of the season.

Unfortunately, mis-use of pyrethroids has accelerated natural biological processes which means that in some areas resistant mites have developed. There are pockets of resistance to the active ingredient in Apistan in the UK. Check with your local association or monitor mite-fall carefully during the first days of treatment with Apistan. It is recommended to rotate between treatments of different chemical classes every two to three years.

Key Facts

  • High proven efficacy in a six-week treatment period
  • Long-term control
  • Easy to use
  • No detectable residue in honey
  • Safe for bees and beekeepers
  • The strips release exactly the right amount of active ingredient
  • Effective again after a few seasons of non-use even where resistance was once present.

Insert two strips in the brood box for a period of six weeks (two brood cycles).  Apistan is packed in pouches of 10 strips, 2 strips per hive. Each pouch is suitable for 5 hives

The strips should be inserted, spaced apart hanging on different frames fairly centrally in the brood nest where bees will walk over them.

Apistan should not be used during a honeyflow.
