Here Finnish researches have handled how to handle varroa. They work in practice with bees on professional level.

They have connections to European mite control results.

Contact Miller Bee Supply in North Carolina at 888 848 5184.  I'm sure that they will be able to relay customer comments from people who have used Mite Away II

I just finished a 21 day treatment. There were so many mites on the debris tray that I didn't even bother counting, so I am pleased with the results.

The drawbacks: a slightly cheesey smell, which is diminishing and wax moth larva on the debris tray. Since the tray was taped during the treatment, they found a way to enter but did not bother the bees.
