I am going to try using other method in treating varroa mites, right now the method I use is using formic acid. What are my other options?

It is highly recommend that split be done with only strong healthy hives that have at least two Brood Chambers with Brood in all stages of development. Frames with capped Brood should be split evenly between the two hives.

thymol or amatraz if you have the same restrictions as the US and oxalic if you have the same freedom as the rest of the world.   There is also hopguard but the stuff stinks and is so messy
