  5. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    An actual scientific lab test will verify your findings if you can find one. I suspect, depending on where the honey is located in the hive, will also change the amounts.

    Re: Weak hive problem

    good point. I should have added "if found healthy". I was picturing just a queen that isn't laying. The one hive i had EF on last year and quaretined rebounded after treatment, packed on 2 supers...
  7. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    well said. Even now people ask me if i "treat" my hives with chemicals when asking about honey. They have no clue and think we are dousing it with Diazanon or the like. If something like this hit...

  12. Re: OA vaporization is probably safe with honey supers - here's my calculations

    That sure is a lot of work to prove a point

    you ever smell oa vapor? no way would i sell that to anyone if there was a chance of it being in the honey.

    Re: Weak hive problem

    Yes you could try all of that but better to just let it go or shake the bees into another hive. You would need a queen quick and even then she isnt' going to lay up the whole box as the weather will...

    Re: Putting a shallow supper below deep?
