  1. Re: Possible recommended OA vaporizer dosage changes

    Patricksul, been there and done that a few years ago when the Argie Bargies first came out with it. I found that if your mite load was low it would keep mite growth in check but if you had a high...

    Re: Band heater vaporizer.

    Zadriel there is no need for the solid state relay, the Mypin TA4-RNR has an internal relay for switching the band heater on and off. The contacts are rated at 5 amps resistive load and the 275 watt...

    Re: Honey Wars

    Oldtimer from the Maori cultural point of view all the Maori have in the honey is the name that they called that plant, and I see from one of those links that the name of Manuka was used by the...

    Re: Honey Wars

    Oldtimer it appears to me that the Aussies have known about this honey for quite some time but as it tasted so bad that they could not sell it until the Kiwis came up with this sales pitch that...

    Msl, as far as swarm cells go there are some keepers who claim that the using of swarm cells selects queens with a swarming tendency which also goes for keepers who collect swarms. Now if you wish...

    Re: Slovenian AŽ design

    These hives do have pro's and con's and I think are more suited for the Northern climes. I am in the Mid Atlantic zone and do have both AZ and Langstroth hives. Most of my production comes from the...

    Re: OAV Dosage - Legal Dose Not Enough

    Re: OAV Dosage - Legal Dose Not Enough

    Psm, I doubt that there will be many mites feeding on bees while there is brood available unless the hive is over run with mites. It is unlikely we will get any real interest by academia in OAV as...

    Re: OAV Dosage - Legal Dose Not Enough

    Re: OAV Dosage - Legal Dose Not Enough

    Well when the EPA tells me what they do with their bees I will start to take notice of what the EPA has to say. Of course OAV does not work, you can ask my bees that have been treated with nothing...
  18. Re: If I add an upper entrance above my QE will the bees fill the honey supers faster

    I believe George Imrie did a study on this, and from this came the Imrie shim which is a shim to create a second entrance above the QE. On the trials he conducted the hives with entrances above the...

    Re: No Mites??!

    After 2 treatments of OAV on a broodless package with zero mite fall means either you have zero mites or the stuff you were sublimating was not oxalic acid.
