Bee-Bay brings you Varra K.O. (VKO)
Premium honey bee application. VKO can help disrupt the hive environment and hydrocarbon (scent) masks provoking the house bees cleaning and hygienic behaviour helping them to detect and remove the mites.
VKO contains inverted sugar syrup, propolis extract and essential oils which help allow the bees to be alerted via scent to the presence of the mite.
Ready to use.
Can be applied with syringe, spray, or better yet the BBQX.
Shake well before use.
Apply onto bees in the brood box between the frames drenching the bees.
Or brood frames can be removed and the liquid sprayed onto either side of the frames. Can be applied all year round.
Applications can be conducted all year round although the best time is when the bee colony is decreasing. Application should be repeated 6 days after the first application and again on the 13th day to catch any emerging mites from cells
DO NOT APPLY WHEN SUPERS ARE ON HIVE
