AbstractA method for treating honeybees for mite or parasite infestation by exposing the hive to a magnetic field which is limited but which is still greater than two orders of magnitude stronger than the magnetic field of the earth. Such a magnetic field combats the mite or parasite infestation, but the magnetic field is not so strong as to affect the viability of the bees themselves.
