Oxalic acid dihydrate - solution 3.5% (m/V) ad us. vet. 2x500ml (1000ml).
Oxalic acid for treatment of varroasis in honey bees (Apis mellifera). Oxalic acid solution acts only on varroa mites that are on the bees and does not act in the capped brood. Treatment should only be carried out in a brood-free bee colony. Please refer to package insert and directions for use.
Type and duration of application:
Depending on the colony strength, 30 - 50 ml of the ready-to-use oxalic acid dihydrate solution is drizzled per colony onto the bee-occupied honeycomb apertures with the aid of a dosing device (e.g. automatic pipette, disposable syringe). The dosage is 5 - 6 ml per honeycomb alley, which corresponds to: 30 ml for a small colony 40 ml for a medium colony 50 ml for a strong colony. The mite fall lasts for 3 weeks. Treatment with oxalic acid dihydrate solution is carried out once in late autumn. There must be no brood present. The outside temperature during dripping should be at least 3°C.
Mix solution and sucrose powder before use for drip treatment for bees in broodless hive.
Fields of application:
For the treatment of varroosis (Varroa destructor) of honey bees (Apis mellifera) in the brood-free period (late autumn).
