It works from top down, key is to have some space for the vapors to disapate as they cool and condense back to the small crystals that we see as the "cloud". I have done some nucs from the top with...
OAV from under the screen is not a good idea. The metal screen acts as a heat sink and the OA recrystalizes on it instead of going up into the hive. It is one of the reasons that some folks have...

You are correct that formic acid forms a true vapor which can penetrate the porous brood capping to kill mites in the capped brood.
Have to agree with crofter.
Instructions for varrox say two and a half minutes - not three.

Some are, it is also temperature dependant.
He does not heat it,

Looks like a wand design issue. Too much mass for the heat source and not good distribution.
I like the Varrox. More expensive but really works well.
You are correct that you can lower moisture in honey that is not fully capped by "using a box fan to blow air through the supers".
You should not have to lower moisture on fully capped honey.
Probably also pollen that was stored in the cells as well. Crushed up and now mixed in. It does not float up as much wax and air bubbles.
I can empty the grey tub a bunch of times before I spend $700.
There is no time table. She is collateral damage, not a target, so no way to give you a meaningful answer.

Formic vapors go through the brood cappings which are porous.
Formic is not soluable in beeswax so...

What you see as grey "vapors" is the cloud of recrystalized OA.
It sublimates, going directly from a solid to a vapor (like dry ice)
As soon as it's temp falls below the vaporization point it...
