After many years of successfully helping beekeepers rid their colonies of Varroa Destructor Mites, HiveClean can no longer be sold in the UK. After lengthy discussions with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) we have agreed not to sell or import and more HiveClean after the end of October 2016.
The reason given is quite simple and it is that another company making an oxalic acid based treatment for Varroa has paid the VMD for a registration of its product in the UK which now makes oxalic acid (and formic acid) medicinal by function and therefore any product containing these ingredients must get authorisation from the VMD to sell or use it in the UK. Unfortunately for us HiveClean contains minute amounts of both as active ingredients and therefore must now be authorised. For us, the cost to register HiveClean is so prohibitive (in the region of £30,000) that it would no longer be financially viable for BeeVital, Austria to supply the UK.
BeeBay would like to thank every one of its customers for their support and apologises if anyone has been inconvenienced by these latest events. We do assure you that we will still be serving your beekeeping needs with organic products to protect and feed your honey bees. Please watch this space.
Please also feel free to protest to the VMD about this decision, should you so wish.
