after a quick look on goggle, I would approach this with caution as it is absorbed threw the skin, Its one thing to be handling OA mixed 1g/28.6ml with syrup, it is quite another to handle it mixed 1g/1ml
It is worth noting that your moving from a lethal human dose being about 3 hives worth ( EPA oad/oav dose) to were a single hive dose is almost 5X the human lethal dose, this is an industrial strength pesticide, treat it as such
I think my stated opinion was that time=money=shortsighted.
Thanks for the helpful answers guys

Has anyone tried this treatment method in colder weather? Randy said something about possible wing damage in cooler temps
I treated with oa/gly with cardboard strips July and Aug. We saw an increase in brood on those hives. Queen must prefer acidic environment.
I understand the concept, but I think in this context the cheapest and easiest way may not be ideal long term. It seems as though we are running out of viable options, the types of cheap easy treatments we have grown accustomed to. For the long term good of the industry, maybe we should look a little farther out.
