    You want to ensure you have some respiratory protection if you're going to do that.

    I have used the fogger for more than 20 years using FGMO and thyme oil mixed as Dr. Rodregas taught me and have used nothing else. It does control the mites very well. I use to run 500 hives but have sold the business and now only have 5 hives. Yes I used it on all 500 hives. I have met Pedro many times and found him a very thoughtful friend

    layed off
    Been there

    Run a LOT of oil through it before you use it on the bees then try on one hive to make sure you have it clean.
