What are the different methods of controlling Varroa mites?

Varroa destructor, commonly known as Varroa, is a parasitic mite that poses a major threat to bee colonies worldwide. By attacking adult bees and brood, this mite can cause significant weakening of colonies, making them more vulnerable to diseases and predators, and can even lead to their death.

In the face of this scourge, beekeepers have different methods of fighting to protect their hives. These methods can be grouped into three main categories:

  1. Chemical methods

Chemical methods involve using acaricidal products to kill Varroa mites. These products can be applied in different forms, such as impregnated strips, fumigations or baths. The most commonly used chemical products are based on flumethrin, amitraz and tau-fluvalinate.


  • Quick effectiveness
  • Ease of use


  • Risk of resistance of Varroa mites to chemical products
  • Potential impact on the environment and the health of bees
  • Not usable in organic farming
  1. Biological methods

Biological methods aim to exploit natural processes to fight against Varroa mites. They can include the use of predatory mites, parasitic fungi or treatments based on oxalic acid or formic acid.


  • Respectful of the environment and the health of bees
  • Usable in organic farming


  • Sometimes less important effectiveness than chemical methods
  • Requires in-depth knowledge of methods and products
  • Can be more time-consuming to implement
  1. Management methods

Management methods aim to modify beekeeping practices to make colonies less attractive to Varroa mites. They can include regular renewal of frames, selection of resistant colonies and destruction of heavily infested colonies.


  • Can be combined with other methods
  • Allows to reduce the dependence on chemical products


  • Requires a significant involvement of the beekeeper
  • Does not always suffice to control important infestations

The choice of the most suitable fighting method depends on several factors, such as the level of infestation of the colonies, the resources available to the beekeeper, local regulations and personal preferences.

It is important to note that a global approach to the fight against Varroa is often the most effective. This involves combining different methods and adapting them to the specific needs of each apiary.

In addition to the methods described above, research continues to develop new solutions to fight against Varroa. Work is notably underway on the development of more effective biological treatments and genetic selection techniques for Varroa-resistant bees but today, we will present the Stop Varroa Treatment method.
