Varroa Treatment

It's that time of the years again. Varroa treatment after honey harvest is highly recommended to reduce the mite load going into autumn when the bees are trying to raise healthy bees that will be resident over winter. Treatments are available at reasonable cost and per hive quantities from Brian at the apiary on Sundays (except 3rd Sunday in the month).


Treatment is a condition of keeping bees on HBKA apiaries and must be coordinated to reduce mite levels in the apiary as a whole. This year the chosen method is one of the commercial thymol preparations and must be started between 14th August and 10 Sept.
