Remove Thymovar strips from packaging, they can be broken in half for easier placement.
Position strips within 4-10cm of the brood cells. Ensure there is 1-2 cm above the strips to allow for good evaporation. The number of strips to be applied will depend on the size of hive (see product label).
Remove the strips after 3-4 weeks. Pause for 1 week to allow replenishing of food then start the second treatment.
