Mite Away Quick Strips are made from natural biodegradable materials and are formic acid polysaccharide gel strips designed to control the parasitic mites called Varroa in honey bees with a high efficacy rate of over 90%. Mite Away Quick Strips have a treatment period of just 7 days and will not leave any residue in the honey or wax.
Mite Away Quick Strips are easy to use. Simply lay them across the top of your brood frames. You can use them during a honey flow if necessary, but you don't need a spacer rim for these strips. As always, when using any acid it's important to wear the recommended safety equipment, and when using these strips in particular, be sure to keep the bottom entrances open the same width as the hive itself.
Mite Away Quick Strips are now available in all states, and they're certified for use in the production of organic honey! Make sure to store them below 77°F (25°C) and away from direct sunlight, and you'll be able to treat your hives twice with each pack. Daytime temperatures must be between 50°F and 84°F (10°C and 29°C) for the treatment to work, though, so keep that in mind. Unfortunately, we can't ship to HI or AK at this time.
