Time to Treat for Mites!

It’s very important to treat your bee colonies for varroa mites before they make their “winter bees” at the end of the season.

Varroa mites feed on larvae and cause honey bees to have shorter lifespans. If your colony raises winter bees while they have mites in the hive, those winter bees will not survive through the whole winter. As bees die earlier, the winter cluster gets smaller and at some point, the colony doesn’t have enough bees to keep warm through winter (even though they may have plenty of honey nearby, they cannot reach it because the cluster is too cold).

If you still have honey supers on top of the hive, we recommend Formic Pro Strips or Hopguard, as they can be used while you have honey supers on.

If you already removed supers you can still treat for mites with the same two products or even use Oxalic Acid.

Formic Pro is more convenient for the beekeepers that have one to 10 hives, with Oxalic acid becoming more convenient for beekeepers with more hives.

  • Bee Package ($159.99)

    I purchased a package and have been so happy with them. It was cold and rainy the day I got them and was worried about them. Got them in the hive and they have settled into their new yard. The queen is very active and the hive is going great!

  • Bee Package ($159.99)
    reviewed by Wendy Bachman


    These Saskatraz package bees are my first hive. I could not express enough how vigorous, gentle, and fast they are at setting up shop in their new hive. I purchased a nuc of a different strain from another place, and under the same exact conditions, the Saskatraz have exceeded my other hive in rearing brood and drawing out new comb. BeeManiacs is an excellent place for those of us who need more guidance, and they care a lot about the health of the bees they offer. A++++ customer service!
