    Default vaporizer

    I was wondering if anyone here has made their own Vaporizer for Oxalic acid ?

    if so could you send me plans for one please : )

    i have seen some different kinds of homemade ones like pipes that you heat with a torch ect, but no homemade ones like Fat Bee Man uses.

    Thanks for your time

    I don't think Fat Bee Man uses a vaporizer, but rather a propane mosquito fogger with Food Grade Mineral Oil. Oxalic Acid is not applied using a fogger, but with a Vaporizer.

    If you would like to build a vaporizer for Oxalic Acid Vapor treatment just google - "oxalic acid vaporizer plans" and you will find plenty of ideas.

    I didn't realize FB was using Oxalic Acid, I thought he was only using FGMO fogging. Thanks for setting me straight on that.

    I am curious why FatBeeMan needs oxalic or FGMO with his small cell bees.

    i am a new beekeeper , so i like to see what Don uses and take it into concideration. he's the first person i saw using the vaporizer, that is why i was wanting to build one.
    i see some places that sell the heating element for the vaporizer, but thought i might be able to build one cheap, i really like to build my own stuff : )
