Re: DWV? Need Advice
Definitlly YES, you don't want any chemicals in your honey for human consumtion, that's the problem up here, northern beeks wait for honey to be capped in order to be harvested, and that is often September, so temperatures can drop any time bellow 10 C, so you can't use formic acid as the softest kind of treatment succesfully, and in order to save colony you use harsher things.
