I've been applying my Apilife Var for two weeks now, two to go. Using the method of one strip broken into four every week.

An alternative method, suggested by Thornes in a leaflet they hand out, is to apply two strips every fortnight.

As I wont be able to get to my girls for the last application (well I'll be a couple of days late), I'm planning on doing my last fortnight's application using the second method.

I can't think of any reason why this change of schedule should adversly affect the treatment, but theres clever folk than me on here - anyone?

It will do no harm but do it at least a day before you go away so you can check whether they all come out of the hive due to over-dosing. If this happens remove one of the tablets. If they don't come out of the hive when you put two tablets in the bees will be OK.
