Apivar Varria Control Pack of strips

Apivar is the only amitraz-based apiary product that treats several successive generations of varroa mites, reducing mite populations in the hive by up to 99%* in 1 application.

Apivar strips consist of only two components:

  • Amitraz, an acaricide, is the active ingredient in Apivar strips.
  • This active ingredient is delivered to the honey bees via the polymer strip, which is specially designed to constantly deliver the active ingredient via the surface of the strip after it is placed in the hive.

Apivar works by contact: the active ingredient is delivered continuously over time. As bees walk on the strip’s surface they pick up molecules of the active ingredient and then distribute them throughout the colony.

Apivar has been subject to a variety of stringent regulatory studies and evaluations and its high effectiveness was proven by various scientific trials in different countries, with a constant efficacy between 97 and 99% for more than 10 years.*

Ordering Information

Please note. The lines on the Invoice show the GST exclusive amount. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for the Total to pay.

We normally dispatch the day the payment shows in our bank account and delivery times are at best one day to South Island Destinations and two days to North Island Destinations. You need to allow at least another day for Rural Delivery. This does not include weekends. It is best to anticipate that delivery may take longer than this especially during peak times e.g. pre Christmas.

Internet Banking payments made by 8 p.m. Monday – Thursday usually show in our account the following day. Payments made on Fridays by 8 p.m. will usually show on the following Monday, however, payments made after 8 p.m. on Fridays and during the weekend will be processed overnight on Monday and will not show in our account until Tuesday morning.

You need two strips per brood box.  It is important to maintain this dosage as it provides the necessary strip surface area to ensure that the bees are able to distribute enough active ingredient throughout the colony to provide optimum efficacy.
