    Before you get too worked up about the "air compressor, power supply and hose", perhaps you should look again at the original post ...

    OA is a powder. Can't one just sprinkle it on the top bars and let the bees spread it around? Again, the dose would need to be figured out.

    A bit off topic here but does oxalic acid do anything to kill trachea mites? I vaporize in the fall for varoa.

    snl .... your research say that it kills BOTH trachea and varroa mites. Where did you get this from? There is not even a single vaporizer on the market that kills tracheal mites.
    Evaporated OA is an contact treatment outside the bees. If you trickle liquid syrup with OA, bees eat it and it comes in the blood of the bees.... this MIGTH clean up some tracheal mites.
    One treatment with Thymol (strips or paste) cleans out the tracheal mites faster before the first varroa gets killed.

    From Michael Bush's website "FGMO and (by some accounts) Oxalic acid will also kill them."
