    The reason that Ian's burn was 30 seconds (vs 20) is that he used 4 grams in his burn, rather than the standard 2 grams (one per brood chamber).

    How many treatments (with the ProVap) can you get from that inverter/pack before it needs recharging?

    Rader, the inverter is attached to the battery on a continuously running vehicle, it holds no charge of its own. It just converts the DC to AC.

    Yes, the drawback to a portable 12 volt portable battery pack that also has an AC inverter is limited run time.

    The 12 volt vaporizers typically draw in the range of 160 watts, the ProVap is 250 watts (plus some overhead watts consumed by the inverter itself). So one might get around half the runtime using an battery/inverter powered ProVap compared to a 12 volt vaporizer powered by that same battery pack. That is why I suggested that an inverter be used with a running engine.

    Another satisfied BeeSource customer!


    Picked one of these up from Mann Lake a few weeks ago. I remember seeing a video of one about a year ago and couldnt find it again, then stumbled into it. This thing is absolutely awesome!!!!! I was REALLY p------d off with the lega and was planning on using multiple varrox vaporizers at a time this year. Not anymore

    A syrup pump and this provap 110 is really going to help me expand my beekeeping operation with the limited free time I have. I suppose ill be able to manage 1/3 more hives with these tools

    Still another satisfied customer!

    I used to use a Varrox to OAV my 10 hives. It was indeed relatively time consuming because the unit had to be in each hive for upwards of 5 minutes, and then had to cool down before the next application. It would take a couples of hours to get all the gear organized and OAV my 10 hives. Still, the OAV was super effective against the mites and didn't harm the bees.

    However, for me, time is the great bottleneck, and so, even though I wouldn't call it cheap, I bought a Provap because it looked much faster. And, it is. I can OAV my 10 hives in something like 15 minutes. OAVing is now super easy. And I still enjoy the great effectivity against mites of OAV. Time the application with a broodless period and the hive is relatively mite-free for a long time with a single application.
