As long as your temps are near what the package said,no it's not too late.Just be sure your honey supers are off.I wouldn't even worry if night temps are a little cooler than optimum as it will still be warm inside the hive.

>It's not too much late just use a recommended insect killer spray to remove these as soon as possible and you can get the result of these in quick time.

I'm confused.  You do know that bees are insects?

> If you are not enable to do that you can hire a pest removal company for this purpose also.

To spray insecticide to kill Varroa?  I'm still confused...
