The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a list of pesticides registered for use against Varroa mites, to help beekeepers fight this invasive species of bee pest. As part of EPA’s role in the National Pollinator Health Strategy, officials say the agency has expedited its review of registration applications for new products targeting pests harmful to pollinators. According to EPA, the published list makes it much easier for beekeepers to identify all products that are registered for use against Varroa, and helps everyone involved advance toward the goals that were put forth in the National Pollinator Health Strategy.
