    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.

    I stand corrected, $90.00 is even better.

    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.

    This is the stuff that I bought. It's a lot cheaper than what you are looking at.

    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 .

    could either of you post a procedure for how you do your treatments ? I am looking at this as more of a preventitive medicine type thing and a treatment that does not use harsh chemicals . I am also looking for advice on how to identify if i even have a problem . I have a screened bottom board on all my hives and when i check i dont see anything but pollen and chewed wax ( I think ) on the boards

    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.

    I treat when I see mites either on the bees on in drone brood. I start checking in early August. I just open up some capped drone brood and look. That's my clue to treat or not. I've made a metal slide-in bottom from sheet metal (think what they use for heating ducts) for use in my scbb hives to keep the vapors inside. (I don't use the insert on the SoBB hives) Insert the vaporizer on it and and add two grams of OA (about 1/2 teaspoonful) to the vaporizer from Heilyser, connect the battery and vaporize. Directions are included with the vaporizer and there are lots of posts here regarding it. Do the vaporization 3 weeks in a row & you're set.

    Just finished my first round of treatments. My theory is to have few mites now, in preparation for raising of winter bees. I get Red Devil brand OA at the paint store, treat with insert in the SBB, don't really worry about further sealing up hive. As to not being a harsh chemical, be careful, not something you want to get a lungful of.
