Specifically, was wondering about what to expect in terms of egg laying rate, worker/larvae mortality after application of four 15" strips per brood nest. The concentrations of oxalic acid used for soaking strips are quite high: 600g of OA per 1000g of glycerin makes it around 35% by weight. Should one expect to see any sign of distress/damage comparable to a flash treatment with concentrated formic acid? Thanks and Best Wishes, h.

Aluen-CAP has been a commercial product for five or so years. Are there any new data on the short- and long term effects of this high concentration formulation on queens, brood, honey? Couldn't find anything really new since the 2015 Maggie paper.
