    Default OAV and Feeding SUB

    I'm planning to put SUB in the hives here soon. Also plan to do an OAV treatment. Was wondering what everyone's thoughts were about when to OAV. Prior to placing SUB, or will it be alright to OAV after placing SUB?

    Since it forms small crystals inside hive I think i would treat without patty inside, although it probably would not hurt them. JMHO

    I was hoping that you would chime in on this one. The King of OAV That's a compliment by the way. If I were to do the OAV prior, how long before I could open the hive to place the SUB?

    Just research a lot. The hive is closed after OAV for ten minutes to seal in the vapors, 15 minutes is fine.....
