Re: OAV treatment in honey producing hive
OA Vaporization has been used in Europe and Canada for quite some time, yet there are still restrictions from the vaporizer manufacturers to not use this method with supers on the hives. I wonder why those limitations were put in place to begin with. Is there conflicting data from other tests that would require the warning to not apply OA with supers on.
I'm not disputing test reports which seem to indicate that it's safe to vaporize with supers on and not impact the honey. It just seems odd that it's taken decades for someone to take a closer look at this and focus on disproving the fear of OA contaminating the honey in open cells.
To everything there is a season....
