Directions For Use

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with the 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 on 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. If daytime high is above 80 degrees Fahrenheit, place the Mite-A-Thol® packet on the bottom board. Replace the packets in 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 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 the hive and honey production reduced.

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

WORKER SAFETY RE-ENTRY INTERVAL:

The re-entry time is zero, but when opening a treated hive, allow accumulated vapors to vent before working the hive.

The label must be in the possession of the user at the time of pesticide application.
