The Advantages of Amiflex
In terms of usage, Amiflex stands out for its versatility. It can be applied before, after, or between honey flows without any withdrawal period. For high infestations, it allows up to 2 subsequent applications with a 7-day break in between. End-of-season applications provide a knock-down effect and long-term protection.
Amiflex is also designed for convenience. The ready-to-use gel form speeds up the application process, with the included dosing gun ensuring precision. Each cartridge contains enough gel for multiple applications, eliminating the need for additional equipment or mixing.
In regards to safety, rigorous evaluations affirm that Amiflex poses no risk to bees, hive products, or brood development. It doesn't affect the quantity of stored honey, and no residues exceeding EPA thresholds have been detected.
Accessibility and Other Varroa Mite Control Products
Amiflex is available in two packaging formats, "Starter pack" and "Refill pack," capable of treating between 100 and 200 hives based on the hive configuration. In addition to Amiflex, we offer a wide variety of other products to help manage your varroa mite population.
