Since beekeepers in Europe and elsewhere have started controlling the varroa mite several chemicals have come along. The reason for that is the rather quick resistance development of the mite against the chemicals, but in some cases also the bad (health-) reputation of some chemicals (carcinogenic) as well as too severe side effects on bees. Because the chemicals are applied inside the bee hive it is no surprise that residues can be found inside the bee hive, in wax, bee bread and honey stores
