Last Formic Pro Sale of 2021

Time to stock up on Formic Pro!

We have a batch of Formic Pro with sell by date of July 2021. We have set a deeply discounted sale price so all units will find a home (or hive) before that date!

Once Formic Pro is sold out this year, we may not have any more Formic Pro until spring 2022.

The sale price will be active as long as supplies last. We do not ship Formic Pro, so it can only be bought for “pick up at store” and you will need to pick it up before the end of July.

If you buy more than what you need for this year, you can store the leftover in the freezer for a long time. We just cannot sell the product past the sell-by date, but you can buy it and store it at low temperatures beyond that date.

Formic Pro is the only mite treatment that kills the mites even inside the capped brood cells. It can be used with honey supers on the hive.

This treatment has Organic Certification:

  1. do you still have formic pro, we need 1 package and we can pick up.

    1. Sorry, but we are totally out. We are going to bring more by Spring 2022. At this time we only have Hopguard available.

  2. We used ‘Formic Pro’ last fall and the fall before. We lost all 7 of our hives . . . which all had honey left this past spring. I understand that mites can produce the sort of ‘Absconding’ that we seemed to have. Almost no dead bees in any of the 7 hives.

    Leaving aside the question of mites being the root of the losses, are we ill advised to use ‘Formic Pro’ again this year?

    What might you recommend as the best alternative? Where does oxalic acid fall in the ranking of good preventative treatment. . . and can you use it with honey supers in place as is apparently the case with ‘Formic Pro’?

    1. Hi Dan, we know many beekeepers that use Formic and their hives overwinter successfully.
      Hopguard can also be used with honey supers on. But we would recommend taking honey supers off and start getting colonies ready for winter.
      Once you remove the supers you have more treatment options, including Oxalic Acid.
      At this time, Formic, Hopguard, and Oxalic are all valid treatments. Opinions vary, but all methods are currently used.
