When using the fogger with the FMGO and Thymol mixture are you still supposed to fog every week? I tried it for the first time this weekend using the Thymol mixture. I have never fogged at all before. I had been using Formic acid treatments. Should I fog every week using the Thymol? I do not plan to use the emulsion cord treatment. I am only going to treat using a fogger and nothing else. I bought Thymol crystals from the Wal-Mart pharmacy. They ordered it for me and it came the next day. It cost me $19 and change. I got a bottle containing 100 grams. They split it for me 50 grams and 50 grams. I followed the recipe in the March 2004 issue of the ABJ. I am a little worried because when the Thymol disolved, the mixture remained clear. Smells just like Vicks Vapor Rub. The bees could be heard buzzing loudly in the hive when I shot the fog to them. The next day I went to look at my hive and they were bringing in pollen and appeared to be very active. It may be my imagination but the bees appeared to have a sheen to them from the oil. I will say that one should be careful how close they put the tip of the fogger to the hive entrance. I put my hand a couple of inches from the tip of the fogger and it scorched/ steamed the heck out of my hand. It was windy when I fogged my bees and I had to put the tip of the fogger pretty close to the entrance so the fog/ smoke would enter the hive. I have come up with a good idea that I will use the next time I fog. I am going to use a short section of 1 inch PVC pipe to put on the tip of the fogger and direct the fog/ smoke into the hive entrance so as to not burn/ kill any bees. I am excited about using the fogger and would appreciate any advice or comments.
