    Re: Does A New Beekeeper Need An OAV Set-up?

    That's a very good idea. Wait until the queen is laying just a bit b4 vaporizing. The queen you're getting with your packages is probably foreign (to the workers with whom she is placed) and so you...

    Re: OAV?

    Not too late to treat at all. You've received some good answers here. OAV will not harm brood, bees or the queen.......... It is probably the only good treatment this time of year......

    Re: Would you treat with OAV now?

    Totally agree with a small exception......the weather can be as low as 37. Not much of a difference, but don't want you not to treat if the weather is less than 40.

    Re: Can someone tell me

    That's what I have found as I believe the bees use the darker wax from the old comb to cap the honey. However, I've not found the honey itself to be darker.

    Re: Spring OAV treatment in NorCal?

    From everything I've read this is true. Remember tho, you are NOT treating with the supers on, so there is no buildup whatsoever in the extracted honey. With all the capped brood (where most of the...

    No foolish questions here. Aluminum is just fine and it is what is used by most and no, it is not corroded by the OA. Stainless is better as it allows a more even distribution of heat but you'll be...

    If the oxalic acid comes in contact with the mite, yes...... OA must contact the mite in order to destroy it. While the exact method of OA destroying the mite is hazy at best, it is believed that...
