    Default oxalic acid drip

    Anyone like this method. Thought about mite gone but nobody seems to use it or have experience with it.

    When should I expect to be bloodless in northern Wisconsin?

    Hmmmm…….I don’t know why a beekeeper asked this strange question? Are you a doctor?

    Look once the day in a mirror, if you’re face is totally white than you’re almost bloodless.

    I subliminate oxalic 3 times in late summer and 3 times in spring. I dont wait for broodless or bloodless as you called it. I like to have it done early enough to get young bees going into winter

    Keep in mind that oxalic acid is not approved as a mite treatment in the US.

    If you check Randy Olivers website, www.scientificbeekeeping.com He uses the dribble method in Aug. if they have high mite loads. Its only recommended to do it once a year. The website has all the instructions.
    True its not approved in USA, but is in most other countries. Don't think powdered sugar is approved either.
