Abstract

Perizin was used against the Varroa mite in honeybee colonies in cold climate conditions when no brood was present. In 10 colonies with the recommended dose rate, a mean efficacy of 97.6% was achieved. In another experiment in mild climate conditions, when the least amount of brood was present in 10 colonies, four applications of Perizin emulsion at 4-day intervals and at half the recommended dose rate achieved a mean efficacy of 95·31%. The result for full dose treatment in the same experiment showed an efficacy of 96.02%.
