Abstract

Varroa destructor is probably the most serious problem of Apis mellifera. Api Life Var (thymol) is the traditional summer treatment against the mite, while the treatment with oxalic acid is usually performed in winter, during the broodless period. In this study we tested the oxalic acid use in the summertime, in artificially induced broodless condition, and the effects of the necessary queen caging on varroa and colony population dynamics
