    Default Various forms of wax moth control in shipping containers

    Anybody have any real world experience for using acetic, formic, or heat (or any other more natural control that's practical in a shipping container)for wax moth control in stored supers in shipping containers? I'm looking for alternatives. If you have real world experience please post dosages (and how you applied it) that have proved effective. Also, I've dabbled with ozone and it works but it seems you'll have to spend about 10 grand for a unit that produces enough for a whole shipping container. Maybe somebody knows how to build one cheaper? Thanks

    the most interesting one that i've heard is CO2. you seal the container well, run your hose in a high corner, open a 50# bottle??? and let it do it's thing. make sure there is a lock on the door, and maybe leave yourself a note. i've only done it with a 20# bottle under 4mil plastic in a closed space but it did work.

    If you don't have the container yet, buy a reefer container/trailer
