Directions For Use:

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with it's labeling. Treat each over-wintering hive with 1.8 oz. (50 grams) of Mite-A-Thol during the period when there is no surplus honey flow and daytime temperatures are expected to reach at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Mite-A-Thol should be enclosed in approximately a 7 inch square plastic screening or similar porous packet placed an the top bars or on the bottom board of the over-wintering hive. Mite-A-Thol placed on the top bars is the preferred method of treatment at temperatures below a daytime high of 80 degrees Fahrenheit, place the Mite-A-Thol packet on the bottom board. Replace the packets in the over-wintering hive with fresh packets as needed to maintain Mite-A-Thol in the hive. Ten to twelve weeks after the initial treatment remove all Mite-A-Thol packets from the hive. Remove all Mite-A-Thol packets from hives at least 1 month before the beginning of the surplus honey flow to prevent contamination of marketable honey. If colonies are treated during the honey flow, the bees may be repelled from bee hive and honey production reduced.

The use of Mite-A-Thol to areas where there is no stop in brood production may result in reduction in honey production.
