Easy—and Safe—to Use
Each HopGuard 3 mite treatment kit contains ten or twenty-four insert strips, ready for use.
- The daytime temperature should be above 50°F (10°C).
- Use two strips per brood chamber: that is, one strip per five frames of bees, two strips per ten frames of bees.
- Strips should be hung between brood frames.
Note: Refer to the package label for full instructions.
Simply add HopGuard® 3 to hives at the rate of two strips per ten frames of bees. Strips should be hung between brood frames; refer to the package label for full instructions.
When treating colonies under high temperature and humidity conditions, open the hive entrance fully, remove inner covers (if present), open screened bottom boards (if present), and insert a rim or spacer under the lid. This will help the hive regulate temperature and humidity during treatment.
