    Default OAV from the top of the hive.

    I am looking for any keepers with experience of OAV from the top of the hive instead of inserting on the bottom board.
    I am looking for advice and your evaluation of effectiveness.
    Thanks

    Default Re: OAV from the top of the hive.

    Greetings JRB ... I am just up the road from you in Cullman Alabama.
    While I consider myself "treatment lite" I apply OAV via the crack pipe method.
    I am not too impressed with it , whether from underneath or above, but I think it is more of a "brood present" versus "broodless" state that makes the difference.
    Started summer of 2013, just another new guy, tinkering with bees.

    Johnmcda,
    That is what I have heard but I would love to get some pointers as I want to build a couple of units to set on hive & fire them off.
    Any pointers?
