Re: Why not use Oxalic Acid?
The way I see it, "winterloss" is the number of dead colonies coming out of winter. Say I had 100 live colonies in October and 90 live colonies in April, then my winterloss was 10 colonies. What most people don't keep good track of and don't report are the number of colonies that go belly up during the rest of the year from going drone layer, or diseased or whatever.
