Description: 

Widespread use of toxic chemical controls to Varroa in the early years proved both environmentally hazardous and easily resisted by the mite. Consequently, various management control styles have emerged - some of which have over time also proved very damaging to the colony. This booklet is for the Beekeeper looking for less toxic and more natural alternatives without the use of chemicals and advises that successful Varroa control can be achieved by manipulations using splits and based on knowledge of the mites life cycle.
