Yeah, it smells like formic, but the vapor volume is ziltch.
It takes a minimum of 24 grams of formic to vaporize to have any effect on mites.
By day 3 of MAQS you are probably down to 2 0r 3 grams which kills nothing.
Remember, this is a FLASH treatment. And an effective one.
Make sure to get back to the hives to queencheck between days 5 - 7.
Formic flash treatments have always killed a % of queens and this one is proving to be no different.
Watch the bee journals, scientific data to be published shortly.
I strive to do my work to the best of my ability every day out of gratefullness.
