Saw this on a "Green" beekeeping website, mostly Europeans, one of the posters (in Germany), uses this and buys it at his local beekeeping shop. Don't know if it's available here in the USA or not.

It's much the same as oxalic acid with a few extra ingredients. Not sure of the benefit of the additional oils and acids other than too make the oxalic stick better.
And perhaps to make it smell nice?

Active Substances: Oxalic acid, citric acid, propolis, alcohol and essential oils. BienenWohl® is a mixture of substances that are harmless to bees. These substances become undetectable after just a few days, and they leave no residue in the wax or the honey. An efficacy of up to 96% can be achieved during the broodless period. The amounts of citric and oxalic acid contained in a dose are about the same as in 50 g of spinach.

The use of BienenWohl® for varroa treatment is permitted in Austria subject to the following conditions: To be used for eradication of residual mite infestation, preferably during the broodless period.

All from the website.
