    Formic acid applied with the Mitegone system does not appear to have any resistance issues that other products (e.g. Apistan) have.

  • Chris : Almond pollinator 500 hives

    Your treatment is labor intensive, but has excellent results and work well even in the worst conditions thatís why I came back should of never left.

    Just two treatments this year Iím happy about that, treated 5 times last year with different stuff and still had a 40% loss.

    Oh wanted to tell you too the formic works well on skunks too they will not bother them during the treatment I watch a family of skunks come in one night (waiting on a bear) they wanted to scratch and go to the entrances of the hives but the fumes kept them away I watched them go about 20 minutes they Finley left the yard.

  • Daria & Roland: Beekeepers 70 hives
    CA / BC North April 2018
    This year we had only 1-2% losses as opposed to loses in a previous year, when we had 60% losses! (we treated before with oxalic vapor)
  • Kent ; Beekeeper 52 hives.
    CA /AB / South west February 2018
    Varroa mites are simply of no concern to us when Mite Gone is used properly. It seems the solution is staring us in the face.

    After reading the article in the Bee Culture, January 2018, p. 88: Southeast U.S. Varroa Treatment Decisions, I felt like commenting a little on that. .

    April and August MiteGone treatment is fully comparable or more effective than Acrinathrin strips and Amitraz fumes.

    Mitegone has *not* been the subject of any such damage reports as far as we know,

    Bill has done a lot of experimentation and missionary work with formic on his own nickel and is not trying to corner the market with proprietary methods and lobbying the regulators AFAIK.
