    The viscocity (weight) of the oil is critical to it's success. The only oil that has been tested is:

    "OIL DESCRIPTION
    Food Grade Mineral Oil, also called Liquid Parafin, has a density of 0.86. A petroleum derivative that is odorless and colorless. Used widely in the food industry.(000041) May be purchased from pharmacy, as a laxative. Must be marked "U.S.P." One liter (33.8 fl oz) of oil will fog 7 colonies once-a-week for an entire season or make enough cord emulsion to treat 200 pieces of cord, 20" long. Enough cords to replace them every 2 weeks in 7 hives for 7 months.(000066) COST - Wal-mart Pharmacy, 1 pint (16 fl. oz), $1.62.(DW)"

    If yours meets the density requirments it might work, but it is critical to get the right weight oil.

    Better to get the correct Oil that use something that shouldn't be used and have a failure. Using the wrong Oil could be the cause of not killing the mites or how would you know??????? Dale

    The question about using lubricoat for food equipment for fogging.
    Answer after much research by this farmer
    Lubricoat has a thinner viscosity and will turn your fogger into a small flame thrower. I tried lubricoat in an old fogger that we use around the farm and all we could do with it was start fires every time the trigger was pulled.
    The only usefulness of this would be to burn up your hives and bees.

    Yes, but does it kill the mites?
