Someone asked the other day who was still selling Byvarol - well I saw a shelf full of it today. Mole Valley Farmers at Cullompton, Devon had it. I commented to staff how surprised I was to see it, and y said it stays in stock uuntil it is gone.:confused:

It will have an expiry date, so either some are buying it or.......it will eventually date-expire.

Was advised to put a strip in to any new swarm I collect.

I would imagine the surprise being ,in most of main land UK the varroa mite is largely immune to bayvoral.or at least it's effects are sorely compromised.

Ok thanks John

Do you recommend anything for a newly caught swarm?

Yep - I was surprised because the SBI told me that it is no longer recommended in the UK, as the bees are now immune to its effects - and that it is no longer for sale. Couple that with the regular mentions it has received on here about the fact it should no longer be used.

Queens59,

We are obviously not getting through to everyone. Someone (or two) bought those Croatian hives, didn't they! There are quite a lot on the forum who do not read many of the posts.

I must admit I must have too much time on my hands!! I read EVERY post even if it is not applicable then, as I never know when I will be in that position; and have learnt a great deal in the process - if I am not learning, I go mad!!

Just to be picky, it is not the bees that are immune to its effects but the mite.
