    Default Oxalic Acid and Alcohol Treatment

    I have gathered supplies and decided to err on the side of caution. I purchased a bottle of Denatured Ethanol from Amazon, which is a product of Duda Energy. It is also labeled Denatured Ethanol(Ethyl Alcohol). Is this product the right one to use for this treatment?

    Check the label on the OA. It will tell you how to apply it as a pesticide. Any other means of application is off label and illegal.

    If it is the same chemical composition as the legal one what is the difference other then marketing and market protection.

    DO NOT use denatured alcohol.

    I am not excactly sure how the bees would react to it but I would think it cannot be good for them. If you use alcohol, go to a liquor store and buy grain alcohol. Everclear is one I see most in the liquor stores. Fogging with ethanol an OA is not the same as treating with OAV in a OA vaporizer.
