Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, has granted registration for the sale and use of ApiLifeVar for suppression of varroa mite in honey bee hives. Véto-pharma is the official importer of this mite treatment for the USA and Canada.
ApiLifeVar has been used in about 35 countries for several years, and is the current thymol-based product market leader in Europe. This success is due to its unique formulation, which is a solution composed by 4 natural ingredients: thymol, camphor, levomenthol and eucalyptus oil. This exclusive formulation allows a better release of thymol by contact in addition to the evaporation, improving efficacy. In addition, it allows a reduction in the dosage of thymol per hive, increasing tolerability to honey bees.
Véto-pharma is proud to offer a range of products to assist beekeepers in combating varroa: two effective miticides, Apivar (amitraz strips) and ApiLifeVar (thymol tablets), as well as Varroa EasyCheck, an innovative device for varroa monitoring.
