Apivar® comes in the form of rigid strips vacuum sealed in sachets containing 10 strips. Because they are rigid they are easy to place in the hive.

Apivar® is a contact miticide and the active ingredient, Amitraz, is distributed throughout the hive by bees contacting the strips and then contacting other bees

After use, to avoid any risk of resistance developing and environmental pollution, the strips must be removed from the hives and destroyed under approved methods. Do NOT re-use any strips after one treatment.

The self life of Apivar® is two years from the date of manufacture, when stored appropriately in unopened satchets.

Storage should be at ambient room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
