A new, all-natural effective alternative for apiaries and commercial pollinators facing immune challenges.

The ingredients in Arrest are backed by over 300 university research trials in multiple species showing proof positive effectiveness against immune challenges. Products within Arrest have proven to increase immune function and prevent health deterioration caused by pathogenic

Field studies show:

  • Significant decreases in morbidity and mortality.
  • Decreased yearly death loss of bees from 15 % to less than 4 % . The only management change was the use of Arrest.
  • 121% increase in honey production
  • Eliminated varroa mite infections – Bees are substantially more vigorous
  • Eliminated the use of Tylan® used to treat bacterial infections.
  • Arrest is the most effective, safe, and affordable supplement for apiary losses due to disease.

Breaking Spring News

USDA Spring 2011 Inspection report: Arrest supplemented hives received a rating of “Zero” (none
present) for mites, parasites, and viruses. No use of antibiotics or mite treatments. Hives were only supplemented with Arrest!
