AmiFlex varroa mite treatment is a Ready-To-Use with maximum convenience!
Amiflex is the first registered amitraz “flash” treatment in the USA, without temperature constraints. This is the result of 6 years of R&D by the Véto-pharma team. The goal was to provide a legal, safe and ready-to-use “flash” amitraz product for commercial beekeepers. Challenge accepted!
When can I use Amiflex?
- Amiflex is a 7-day mite treatment.
- You can use it before, after or between honey flows, as there is no withdrawal period after application. Maximum flexibility! Just make sure you always treat without honey supers.
- In case of high infestation, you can apply up to 2 subsequent applications, with a 7-day break in-between.
- You can also use Amiflex at the end of the season, right before your slow-release treatment, to get a knock-down effect before applying the long-action treatment to do its job. Combining a Amitraz flash + slow-release treatment ensures a fast mite reduction and long-term protection for several weeks.
- Keep in mind that you can apply Amiflex up to 4 times per year on the same colony.
- Amiflex does not replace long-action treatments. It is an additional tool for your varroa mite control strategy.
The application of the Amiflex mite treatment is fast and super easy:
- You only have to insert the cartridge into the dosing gun, and you are ready to take the varroa mites out
- The dosing gun, included in the starter pack, has been designed to deliver a specific dose of 3mL per application
- Never worry about the dosage and save a lot of time
