Has anyone experimented with homemade/DIY recipes for hop gaurd? I beleive it is a patented extract, obviously made from hops. I have a strong tincture I made out of vodka and hops, and wondering if that could be used to knock back the mites a little bit? I was thinking of lightly soaking a cotton ball or a piece of clothe, and placing it in between 2 frames. Any problems that anyone can forsee?

I think the vodka will kill the bees when wet, & what you extracted wouldn't be strong enough to do any good.
Also the vodka will evaporate very fast.
