    Hi @dansar,

    I have a clear memory of 12 weeks being recommended on this forum.  Some internet searching reveals:  

    Issued: September 2017 AN: 00031/2017 SUMMARY OF PRODUCT ...

    www.vmd.defra.gov.uk/productinformationdatabase/SPC.../SPC_1251888.DOC

    "If brood is not present or at its lowest level, the strips can be removed after 6 weeks of treatment. If brood is present, leave the strips in place for 10 weeks and remove the strips at the end of treatment. "

     

    And recommendations vary from country to country.

     

    I would be grateful if others would check my "clear memory" and I will amend the 12 weeks to 10 weeks.

    thanks very much.

    That’s OK @tudor yes the longer treatment period has been used in NZ for a while now. Interestingly this is using it off label and therefore we are using it illegally. This all came about when it was first selected as a chemical to be used in NZ but no one was will to spend the money to go through the process to legally change the treatment period required in NZ.

  3. Hi  @tudor could you please elaborate on the 12 week treatment period stated for Apivar?

    I believe that to to be a instruction deviation from the product description of 42 days. Although typically beekeepers in NZ would keep it in the hive for 6 weeks.

     

    Thanks
