VarroMed is a ready-to-use product based on a combination of natural components with the active ingredients oxalic acid and formic acid. This combination leads to increased efficacy against Varroa mites and to a better tolerance by the bees.
The new product has been scientifically tested in the most extensive field studies with locations all over Europe with Madrid representing Continental, Maritime and Mediterranean climates. Spring, Autumn and Winter tests for climate zone each climate zone were undertaken to prove the excellent efficacy of the product. The result is a product that can be used at any critical moment through the beekeeping year and in the Varroa life-cycle. This makes VarroMed ideal for use in integrated pest management (IPM).
VarroMed is an easy to use liquid formulation that is directly applied onto the bees simplifying Varroa treatment. For the distribution in the colony VarroMed makes use of the bees own hygienic instinct - the grooming behaviour.
Due to the nature of the ingredients VarroMed does not pose any risks to the honey production. In fact, this is reflected in the zero-day-withdrawl period of VarroMed approved by the EMA.
This Product can only be supplied to customers in the U.K.
Supplied in a 555ml treatment-indication bottle.
The invention removes the disadvantages of the solution by:
- It has in its composition a single active substance in the purpose of diminishing the whole quantity of active components, this way it excludes the possibility of producing a toxic effect by administering the wrong quantity or an over dosage after repeated administration.
- Very effective therapeutic efficiency against prophylaxis and prevention of acute and chronic viral paralysis, American and European foulbrood and against Varroa Jacobson mites.
- It has a bio stimulating effect over the adult bees, larvae and queens that gain immunity against these diseases including Varroa Mites, fact that determines a diminishing of the number of treatments with pesticides that currently applies against the Varroa Mite.
- It hasn’t got a retardant effect over the queen’s brood.
- It increases the life of the harvesting bees with positive effect over the honey production that increases by 35-40% at least.
- Maltol and propolis(bee-glue) have excipient role and make product to be consumed wright after administration, because these substances have high attractiveness effect for the bees that are submitted for treatment.
- Administration is made by spraying it directly on the bees found on the frames, without adding sugar syrup.
The invention has the advantage of using it in prophylactic purpose, in the free-harvesting periods and when the stressed bees are sensitive to illness.

This trap is a newly marketed trap for catching harmful insects, also designed with in mind the need and benefit of recycling common containers.
Can be screwed onto recycled 1 kg glass honey jar (NOT INCLUDED) (2lb jar).
Made of tough plastic material and consists in two parts: a funnel, to be positioned on the top of the jar (so as to prevent captured insects from flying out) and a lid which screws onto the jar (so as to protect the bait from rain) and has 6 regular gaps (so as to let the insects in).
Can be hung on tree branches or other supports, or it can be placed on a shelf or on the ground. Its stylish shape and flat base make this trap particularly suitable for outdoor spaces such as gardens, camping sites, terraces and boats.
It offers yet another effective and environmentally friendly solution to attracting insects: a solution which is harmless to people, pets and good insects.
Recipe to use below for WASPS, HORNETS, ASIAN HORNET (Vespa velutina)
350 ml of beer + 2 tablespoon of sugar or honey
Alternatively: 200 ml of water + 2 tablespoons of sugar or honey + a glass of vinegar
Alternatively: 350 ml of sweet white wine (or white wine sweetened with sugar or honey) + 20 to 30 ml of mint syrup (roughly equivalent to a small glass)
WASP TRAPS: WE MUST PLACE THEM IN SPRING
We must not wait for the fruits on the trees to ripen before using bio traps if we are to prevent infestations from wasps and hornets in orchards. Rather, they must be placed in early spring so that they can effectively contribute to a reduction in the rate of reproduction of these flying pests.
With the use of the Hornet & Wasp Traps it is possible to effectively control flying pests without resorting to - or at least reducing - the use of pesticides that are harmful to the environment as well us to our health.
“the top-trap” has been used successfully for many years, both nationally and internationally, for controlling flying pests in orchards, vineyards and all kind of farming.
It is made of tough, durable plastic material. Hooked onto a recycled plastic water bottle (filled with half a liter of bait mixture) and hung on branches of the plants to be defended, this trap becomes an economical, effective and environmentally friendly bio trap.
FOR WASPS, HORNETS, ASIAN HORNET
Half litre of beer + 2 tablespoon of sugar or honey
Alternatively: Half litre of water + 3 tablespoons of sugar or honey + a glass of vinegar
Alternatively: Sweet white wine (or white wine sweetened with sugar or honey) + 20 to 30 millilitres of mint syrup (roughly equivalent to a small glass)
❖ Asian hornet: we do suggest to use these baits for the spring and autumn trapping ❖

Sfera Trap™ is an ingenious device for attracting and killing various kind of flying pests: midges, mosquitos, common flies, fruit flies, olive flies, wasps, hornets, Vespa velutina (Asian hornet) lepidoptera, etc.
NB: do not use on flowering plants.
Sfera Trap™ can be used in all environments, both inside and outside. Beside its yellow color - which attracts flying pests during the day - it possesses a feature that makes it unique of its kind: a LED light that attracts flying pests at night. The LED luminaire is powered by two AA batteries (not provided) which have a life of about one month.
Indoor, Sfera Trap™ prevents flying pest infestations in barns, stables, milking rooms, greenhouses, grain and food warehouses, etc... Outdoor, Sfera Trap™ is very effective in catching flying pests in orchard, olive groves, vineyard, gardens, campsites, country houses, etc.
After inserting the two 1.5V AA batteries (not included), insert the luminaire into its seat inside one of the semispheres. Sfera Trap is now ready to be assembled -
How to do it
Before applying the glue, wrap the sphere with a transparent plastic film (such as cling film, or two clear shower cups); then apply a suitable glue.
In the event of loss of adhesion, the glue can be reapplied several times.
In addition to using only glue, or glue and attractants on it, Sfera Trap can also support insecticides and pheromones.
Practical advice: Use disposable gloves in the preparation of the sphere and the various products used. To avoid damage from possible spillage of glue, place a protective sheet underneath the sphere, such as cardboard or paper. In the eventuality of glue spillages these can be removed using white spirit or turpentine -
Sfera Trap™ consists of two hemispheres, one of which with the latching ring. Both hemispheres are fitted with a luminaire seat, to allow for the choice of the position of the light - from above or below.
Fill with a sticky sweet liquid and the wasps will enter the trap via the hole in the bottom, once inside they will try to leave through the clear lid and then perish.
For use with the wasp trap
