  2. Re: Oxalic acid is harmless - I don't bother removing honey supers any longer.

    To Greg's point
    Spinach contains about .97g/100g OA, But it also has 0.90g of calcium

    Re: Benefit to Nadiring (Natural Swarm Control?)

    Nadiring often leads to swarming
    you see it all the time in warres, they don't build into the 3rd box and swarm.

    But on face value OAD melts at 101c, the water boils out of it and it becomes sold OAA, at 189-191c OAA melts, at 190c the OAA boils in to vapor, or sublimes...
  11. Re: Oxalic Acid Dihydrate - Sublimation or Vaporization

    the device is a heat vaporizer... weather it goes liquid to gass (like the water in OAD) or from sold to gas doesn't mater, the tool still turns things to vapor.
