Bullet Points

1.Sponge Included: The formic acid evaporator is round, it contains a sponge,absorbs well, and due to its lower porosity, it enables less evaporation of liquid.

2.Movable Lid: The evaporator on the lid has a movable part through which the opening of the evaporator itself is regulated.

3.Simple And Efficient: This dispenser has been carefully designed to allow safe, simple and highly efficient and bee friendly health products such as formic acid and acetic acid.

4.Adjustable Openings: Adjust the size of the openings to control the rate at which formic acid is released, it with adjustable evaporation area.

5.High Quality Products: Using high quality materials, corrosion resistant, it can be reused several times, beekeeping tools used for killing mites in beehive.


How to use the dispenser?

The dispensers should be filled with formic acid few hours before putting them in the hives. This is to ensure that the absorbent material contained in them soaks up evenly. This can be done even a day before they are scheduled to be placed in the hives.Formic acid vapours are heavier than air, so the dispenser should be placed on top of the nest. The evaporation surface of our dispensers can be adjusted. In the initial phase the opening should be small. The bees usually seem irritated at the beginning of the treatment: they come out in front of the hive and fly around it. Over time this behaviour disappears, and if the temperature does not exceed the maximum allowed value, the evaporation surface should be increased. The adjustment of the dispenser offers 6 opening sizes. This feature allows to take notes, and check the correlation between the temperature and the size of the opening and the behaviour of bees in colonies of different strength. This subsequently allows the beekeeper to formulate an appropriate,effective and safe way for using the dispensers. 70-80 ml of acid can be poured into a single device at a time. This is the amount that the dispenser is able to absorb and evaporate efficiently.



Formic and acetic acid dispenser – a simple and helpful solution for your apiary

With the arrival of September, the fight against Varroa enters a decisive phase. The last honey of this year is harvested from the hives and the nests are finally laid out for wintering. This is a good time to finally deal with the population of the Varroa destructor, which weakens the winter bee generation. It is also worth protecting the combs taken out from the hives against the destructive effect of the Wax moth. In both cases, a 120 ml acid dispenser offer may prove helpful.


Formic acid – an effective way to combat Varroa

Most pharmaceuticals are expensive, so beekeepers are increasingly looking to find other solutions. Some of those are very effective and at the same time inexpensive to use. Formic acid has been known for years and proven in apiaries. It is an organic chemical compound, namely carboxylic acid. The biggest advantage of its application is that it fights Varroa destructor not only on bees themselves – like other medications – but also those hidden inside the sealed off comb cells. Due to the shortened foretical phase of the pests, this factor proves crucial. The 85% formic acid treatment, if carried out correctly, is safe for bees and is highly effective in reducing varroasis.


Acetic acid – a way to keep combs in storage

The returning challenge that beekeepers face every year is to keep the withdrawn frames safe in storage awaiting their re-use in the hives. The stock of those frames is a valuable resource. It allows bees to start collecting honey faster, which is especially important in the early stages of the season. Unfortunately, combs which are not cared for by a bee family often fall prey to the Wax moth. The larvae feed on them, destroying them over time to the point where they cannot be used again in the hives. One way to protect the combs is to apply acetic acid to them. Its concentration in the air makes the pest activity to cease. Several days before these frames are planned to be placed back in the hive, they need to be aired, as the smell of the acetic acid on them discourages bees from getting near the combs and thus from using them.
