Using Menthol and Api Life Var Together

kenpkrSeptember 30, 2004

I am currently using Api Life Var in my 2 hives and would like to go ahead and put in the Menthol for Tracheal mite control. Does anyone see a problem with using both treatments at one time- i.e. too many fumes for the bees to handle, etc. Thank you in advance,

Are you using grease patties? I haven't had too much luck with the menthol in my area. Grease patties seem to do the job and they're very organic if that matters.
