It was granted a section 18 in south dakota-there are other states that are applying for section 3
which will be long lasting the process takes longer than section 18 which will have to be renewed in a years time
Amitraz is by far more forgiving to the bees and wax than fluvalvanate (apistan )--Amitraz is accredited for saving the commercial bee industry through its off label use- there is much concern over resistance being developed once it is used throughout the country - the delivery system will be strips at 3% with a time frame of about 42 days-most off label treatments are a quick flash type treatment of about 3 days and resistance is not a prolonged issue -
amitraz is used in europe and at present in canada-RDY-B

 What this also means is that the FDA will have to change the ruling which currently states
 a zero tolerance for the product(amitraz) in honey--at the current time there is no way to detect it after
a short period of time-amitraz breaks down so quickly there is only two byproducts of the chemical
that can be detected-neither of which is toxic to bees or wax--but there always remains the possibility of a synergist affect with any  treatment or anything the bees get into themselves for that mater---RDY-B

We used to fly tag calves with amitraz treated tags. Didnt know I could tag a hive. Usually if one state passes it, others follow.

This was brought up at the Florida Beekeeper Conference in Tampa. They are expecting Fl to approve it for temporary use.

you can always order amitraz from croatia, here is legal and have a VMP stamp.
in my country amitraz http://www.dalmed.hr/en/varolik.html from domestic producer, same that i use for test a summer treatment.
amitraz strips is here from same producer: http://www.dalmed.hr/en/varodal.html .
also for smoke tretman i use a http://www.varrojet.co.rs/en/varrojet.html for fast treatment.
inportant is right dosage on paper strip for smoking and right time of application and number of repetition.

best regards from zagreb

How would Taktic, or Maverick, or Mitivan be applied?  I think all three are forms of amitraz?

And it's effect on mammals:

and more specifically humans:
http://adc.bmj.com/content/88/2/130.full
http://www.epa.gov/oppsrrd1/REDs/factsheets/0234fact.pdf

From the above epa page:
"Amitraz or BAAM is an insecticide and acaricide..."
