    The last time I checked the Heilyser JB200 vaporizer was still $99.00 which includes shipping, the old German will only take cash or money orders and you will receive it in 2 weeks. I have had mine for 2 years now and it works great. http://www.members.shaw.ca/orioleln/

    JB200 was $90.00 this spring. Works like a charm.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    I stand corrected, $90.00 is even better.

    You need a 3/4 in. entrance and just slip it in.

    This is what I ave gleaned from folks in the know...I am not.

    OA kills phorectic mites on adults...not in the brood. It doesn't harm brood but if you treat when there is brood you need to treat a few times to get the emerging brood with mites.

    Formic acid..MAQS....use once...7 day treatment...gets mites both on adults and in brood...but is greater chance of bee loss, especially newly emergent bees and ones soon to be dead anyway.

    So use OA in late fall when no brood, or use repeat Q 7-14 days.

    Hope I have it correct.

    thank you.

    You can build your own that you use a propane torch on with parts from the plumbing section. Cap, short pipe, piece that reduces to attach a piece of copper pipe to and the 12-19inchpiece of pipe. less than 20$ not as cool as the one that uses a glow plug and a battery, but cheaper.

    does it hurt the bees to do an O A treatment if mites are not a huge problem? From what I am reading , if I understand it correctly , an O A treatment is very bee friendly .

    You can get your oxalic acid at your local hardware store. Go in ask for wood bleach, make sure the only ingredient is OA. MUch cheaper than buying on line.

    Jim,
    I am not too concerned about mites until August, at this time I will pull a number of drones from their cells and look for mites just to see what the mite level is, these tests have never shown excessive mites but it is just for my piece of mind. I treat my hives during the month of October but if tests showed high levels in August then I might treat at that time so the hive would have time to recover from the mites however since I started using OA 3 years ago early treatment has not been necessary.

    I do use OA every year to keep my hives healthy and strong during the winter and vibrant in the spring. Here where I live your hives must be in top condition to make the most of the spring flow, it usually only lasts long enough for the bees to fill one deep.
