Trapping the Queen within a screened frame for a period of time interrupts the Honey Bee Lifecycle (brood). “Brood Interruption” has been proven to be effective in Varroa Mite Control. It is a means of reducing the chemicals introduced into the hive as the beekeeper “pro actively” combats the effects of the Varroa Destructor Mite and the vectoring of viruses by the Mite.
BG Bees, with the “Done-For-You” opportunity will provide a Queen Sequestration Frame, capture the Queen for a period, uncap any brood remaining prior to releasing the Queen, and finally apply Oxalic Acid Sublimation (vapor) to the colony post release of the Queen.
This process has proven extremely effective in Varroa Mite Control.
