WITH 97% EFFICIENCY IS THE BEST ORGANIC TREATMENT FOR BEES AGAINST VARROA MITE

Oxalic acid used for the control varroa mites is widely practiced in central Italy. The oxalic acid sugar solution typically is applied by trickling it between the bee space of the
frames. During the past years beekeeping associations suggested this acaricide to be administrated with cellulose strips soaked in a solution of oxalic acid and water. In field
trials carried out during the spring and autumn, we tested the effectiveness of this method. In different experimental apiaries located in the Latium region, the trials were
carried out with two treatments of the prepared strips. The efficacy of cellulose strips was evaluated in comparison with other oxalic acid treatments: trickling and vaporisation
methods. In spring trials the effectiveness of the cellulose strips was not statistically different from the varroa natural fall. Similarly the autumn trials gave the same results to
confirm the low efficacy of this method. However when spraying, trickling and vaporising oxalic acid, varroa mite control was good under central Italian conditions. The
unsatisfactory efficacy of cellulose strips versus the good control results of trickling and vaporization suggests the possibility that the high acidity of oxalic acid water solutions
(pH around 1) may be responsible for the best oxalic acid activity against the mites.
