Re: Ok, im going from treatment free to oxalic acid vapor treatment and need opinions
I worked at a home made vaporizer this past summer. One design required some Stainless steel fittings. I never did come up with anything I liked. My next attempt will be something that slides into the entrance of the hive. In the end I would probably have saved money and gotten my bees treated better had I just bought a ready made vaporizer. But what fun is there in that.
I did finally manage to get my bees treated using Hooka Coals and small aluminum cups. I did not like the top down path for the vapors though. They want to rise up and I think I would have gotten far more dust on the bees if the vaporizer was at the bottom of the hive.
