Abstract

We evaluated three concentrations of tebufenpyrad (17.5, 15 and 12.5%) in strip formulations for controlling varroa mites, Varroa destructor Anderson and Trueman (2000), in honey bee colonies. We also included colonies treated with Apistan, CheckMite , and untreated colonies in our evaluation. The three concentrations we evaluated reduced varroa populations but also reduced the amount of brood and adult bees when compared with untreated colonies and colonies treated with Apistan or CheckMite . Alternative delivery methods, lower concentrations of tebufenpyrad, and the evaluation of related compounds are logical next steps in evaluating the varroacidal potential of tebufenpyrad and related compounds.
