    Default Oxalic Acid Equivalence

    I am gearing up to fumigating with oxalic acid. From the information I have collected the recommended "dose" should be 1 gram crystals/deep. Since I do not have access to a "gram scale" approximately what volume is that....... teaspoons/tablespoons/shovels/bucket loader?

    You can find a cheap digital scale for around $6 on ebay.

    You can make a simple scale using a ruler. A newer penny weighs 2.5 grams.

    When i ordered my vaporizer I received a plastic 1 gram spoon with the kit. It appears to be the same size as a 1/4 teaspoon measuring spoon. Go with that and you should be fine. It doesn't have to be "exactly" 1 gram, that will get you close enough. That is if you are using the "99%" Wood Bleach from a hardware store.

    I hate spending money especially if I can make something myself. Made my vaporizor out of 1/2 copper tubing .... however, I used silver solder (sp?) because of its' tolerance for higher temperatures than regular plumbing solder. This also requires the use of MAPP gas (yellow bottle) instead of propane.

    I fill the Heilyser bowls full. Level them down with my hive tool and run them no matter the size of the hive. Never had a bad reaction in the hive.

    I have had a Heilyser vaporizer for 4 or 5 years now. I added 20 ft of wire and 2 large aligator clips and just use my truck battery.
