MiteZapper® - Chemical Free Varroa Mite Control - Without Opening Your Colony
Resembling a heating element, the MiteZapper® is a hive frame that is built as a Drone Foundation. Install the MiteZapper® into the box as easily as a regular frame. After the bees seal the brood, the beekeeper connects the frame to the control box, which is then connected to a 12 volt vehicle battery (not included) for about 8 minutes. The electricity produces enough heat to kill both the pupae and the mites. The bees then remove the dead brood/mites within 72 hours. Treatment is performed approximately 5 times per year (every 18-23 days during the drone rearing season). Not for sale to Canada. MiteZapper's® patented technology is 85% - 95% effective in controlling varroa WITHOUT CHEMICALS.
After installation, no need to remove the frame

Mite-A-Thol® Menthol is still the safest and easiest way to treat for tracheal mites! Apply one packet per hive on the top bars of the upper corner of the brood box and leave for a minimum of 28 days for maximum results. Treat for tracheal mites both spring and fall. Remove menthol 30 days before the honey flow begins.
