Evaporation of oxalic acid-a safe method for the user.
Right at the bottom of the link.

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.
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.
Is tracheal mite a problem nowadays??
