Bee Health


Safe and Effective Varroa Mite Control

The Varroa mite (Varroa destructor) has become the #1 threat to honeybee health causing devastating effect on beehives worldwide. Varroa reduces overall hive health, transmits disease from bee to bee, increases susceptibility to other bee diseases and reduces winter colony survivability. Over the years, Varroa has developed resistance to many existing control agents leaving the beekeeping industry with less options to control it.

BetaTec research has discovered a natural hop compound that is highly effective in combating Varroa. HopGuard® II is a scientifically-proven natural Varroa control system. This excellent miticide is derived from hop compounds, and provides the beekeeper with a natural, safe and easy to use alternative to traditional harsh chemicals.

  • Natural, food grade product.
  • No negative effect on normal hive activity.
  • Bee, brood and queen tolerance.
  • No negative effect on queen egg laying.
  • No residual in honey.
