Re: Why not use Oxalic Acid?
I can think of several on Beesource with, thus far, 100% survival, the ones I think of are similar to Daniel, just been going a season or two, some of them treat, some don't. I see no reason whatsoever to doubt Daniels honesty.
Also the thread has taken a somewhat ugly detour from the topic. The topic is not (the age old) treat vs non treat debate, which has already been done a thousand / thousands of time with no real winners, nor is the topic attack / defend Michael Bush. Michael has stepped up and said that was his position 10 years ago, 10 years on it's now different, so be it. Me, I would say I've changed my mind a few times over the last 10 years, just, I don't have a web site.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
