    "could you please give me/us the reference where to find the research showing the advantages of a closed (at >= 4cm) screened bottom board?"

    This paper is in french :

    "Projet d'expérimentation
    d'un plateau de ruche "antivarroas"
    dans la perspective du développement
    d'une stratégie de lutte intégrée
    contre la varroase de l'abeille au Québec"

    Greetings Juandefuca,

    >I lived in Naudville for about 3 years .
    Involved in Chute du Diable & Chute de la Savanne , Isle Maligne .

    That is why you call me Hugo from St.Joseph d'Alma...

    Glad to know that you once lived there. You were involved with Alcan ? Did you have bees of your own there ?

    Hugo

    (For the others) Sorry if I got out of the thread for a moment, just don't have juandefuca's e-mail and couldn't resist to ask... You don't find people knowing my place really often around here

    Well I am not trying to REINVENT THE WHEEL but being of the generation that experienced the depression days of the 30's I try to find to do things the most efficient way possible. I cut the copper pipe down from the approx. 40" down to approx. 18" with a 90 deg. bend which I use to direct the fog up into the SSB. Seems to work O K and the fog is still pretty hot. More of the fog goes up into the hive than just shooting it under the SSB. I have the hives sitting up on concrete blocks.

    Hi Russ .
    What you explained sounds ok with me as long ,as you mentioned , the fog is hot enough to maintain the 15 micron size . There is indeed a lot of fog going by the wayside just pointing the nozzle beneath the sbb. However , there is plenty fog all around with the method.
    The oil onsumption with fogging is minimal compared to the elmulsion formula .
    At this time I used about 3 Gallons since 1999/2000 for plus minus 18 colonies for both applications . Of course it will affect larger operations more than the back yard beekeeper .
