Re: Oxalic Acid Dribble
A strong hive not be visibly set back by an oxalic dribble at all, I suppose you could reapply within a short time if there was a need but with a well timed dosage there really isn't a need. Mites will continue to fall for 4 to 5 days. A small hive (say 5 to 6 combs or less) will noticeably show signs of treatment, even though it is proportionally smaller. They will appear wet and stressed. I would retest after a week before making any decision on reapplying. Don't assume because a little may be good that more will be better.
