OVER 6 YEARS IN THE FIELD, THE MITE ZAPPER HAS BEEN PROVEN TO WORK. NOW THE TECHNOLOGY IS FOR SALE!
The MiteZapper®’s smart technology combines mite biology with simple physics to offer natural and Chemical Free varroa mite control.
The MiteZapper was invented by Dr. Zachary Huang from Michigan State University. Dr. Huang’s extensive research on the technology has proven the MiteZapper® 85-95% effective in controlling varroa mites naturally.
After installation, no need to remove the frame.
Use with a portable or running car battery.
Labor friendly, takes about 8 minutes to treat each colony.
Use under any temperature conditions during the drone rearing season.
As chemicals become less useful due to mite resistance, the MiteZapper® will remain effective year after year – through its patented Heat Technology.
Ideal for Organic bee farms requiring natural varroa mite control.
The MiteZapper can be left in the colony year round.
Kills varroa mites inside the brood cell – at the source where they reproduce!
Safe to use. No special equipment is needed.
Does not contaminate bee products with harmful chemical residues.
Dr. Huang’s research through Michigan State University, has proven the MiteZapper® extremely effective in controlling varroa.
About Our Varroa Control Technology.
Mite Zapper, LLC is located in Michigan USA. Our company was established primarily to develop an economical and effective means for controlling varroa mites through non chemical methods. The founder of Mite Zapper, LLC, John Sinans, is an enthusiast beekeeper of over 15 years – primarily caring for his own bees as a hobby. Over this time he had gained valuable experience in the field of beekeeping and has enjoyed several years of maintaining healthy colonies.
Dr. Zachary Huang Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in Entomology at Michigan State University and is the inventor of the MiteZapper®. During the early 80s, Dr. Huang obtained a national scholarship to study honey bees in Canada.
He came to Michigan State University in 1998 as an assistant professor of entomology, became tenured and was promoted to be an associate professor in 2004. At MSU, his main responsibilities include extension, research and teaching. He was awarded the J.I. Hambleton Award for Outstanding Research by the Eastern Agricultural Society of North American Inc. August 2008. Dr. Huang has lectured at over 300 presentations around the world surrounding honey bees, including the varroa mite infestation. He is also known for developing the social inhibition model (at UIUC), cyberbee.net, and award winning photographs.
Our company was quickly taken by Dr. Huang’s invention of the MiteZapper®. We have spent the last 5 years developing the product for commercial use. Laboratory and field testing has proven the MiteZapper to be 85-95% effective in controlling varroa mites.
Field test –Conducted by Dr. Zachary Huang, Michigan State University Associate Professor of Entomology.
• A total of 42 colonies used
• Three different apiaries
• Each apiary with three groups
• Mitezapper colonies (n=5)
• Drone colonies (n=5)
• Control colonies (n=4)
• Natural mite drop monitored at 8-14 day intervals (sticky trap left for 48 hours but presented as mites/24 hr.)
• Sticky board used for mite calculation.
• Calculation based on mite drop.
• The Drone group comprised of a drone frame foundation.
• Packaged bees from the same supplier were randomly assigned to each treatment.
• Colonies were left to winter
• 80% of mite zapper colonies survived the winter.
• All control and drone colonies died
