What is formic acid: Formic acid is a natural component of honey which, if properly formulated, not only kills adult Varroa mites, but also kills 95% of the mites that incubate in the sealed brood. Because it occurs naturally in honey, formic acid treatments can be applied during the honey flow and leave no residue.

More details from the manufacturer: "Formic Pro is designed for use on standard or equivalent Langstroth hives (eg Dadant), single or double brood chamber hives. The colony should have a minimum of 10,000 individuals, with the cover of about six frames. The door will be released across its entire width and left completely open for the duration of the treatment. Any restrictions on entering the brood chamber (eg reducer or protection for mice) must be removed to avoid excessive damage to the colonies. The bottom must remain closed with the drawer.
