Excellent product fast delivery..
I think the product works fine but it took several weeks to recieve it,even though I paid for the postage in advance!
Seems to have worked well, although the seven days is only just over as I write this. Lots of dead varroa on the board.
Product great, service a little slow this time. Good job I didn't need them urgently.
Cannot give a clear results or feedback on this method of tackling Beehive Mites as it is designed to reduce the Mite infection prior to Winter Hibernation and true results will not manifest until the Spring and if the colony survives. What I can say is FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS to the Letter and if the weather is cold all through the 7 day period they recommend, I left the strips in longer, ( now 12 days ) and am still getting dead mites at 60 per day on the removable board under the screen. With Plenty of ventilation the Bees will be fine and they are now opening up the infected cells to remove damaged Larva and dead mites in there. This Product is a 2 part treatment with the 2nd due in Spring when flowers start to produce Nectar, if warmer then I will stick to the 1 week Treatment before removing the used strips.
