Formic acid with supers on
I needed to put formic acid on my 5 hives. However it is the beginning of the fall flow and I have 3 to 6 supers on the hives. Will putting the formic acid pads on the top of all these supers do the job or are they too far away from the brood?
I'm asking the question after the fact- :doh:
Formic Acid with supers on
I hate to tell you but you blew it, in the directions for use it tells you that you can put supers on after the 21 day treatment, however on the before treatment it tells you to remove supers before the treatment.
I don't know if you can feed the honey back to the bees but I wouldn't dare eat it or sell it! (This info is from NOD Miteaway II flyer)
What does Formic Acid in honey taste like?
That is very interesting. What does the formic acid taste like in the honey? Is this then merely a matter of it altering the taste of honey? The article didn't seem to indicate that there was any other problem with the honey other than taste.
From what the others have been saying I understood there might be other consequenses with formic acid in the honey.
