So I have 1 hive that has had mite issues and some deformed wings. I have formic acid to use and will pull the supers and treat. Should I treat all the hives this year? Many are packages and swarms.


So plan is to use formic acid in a 60% solution. 30 ml into a shop rag in the jar on top 4 days x 3 treatments. Should I close up the SBB or leave it open.

Thanks for the advice in advance.

You will want to close up the SBB to trap the vapors in. Watch the air temp when applying the Formic Acid.

Why are you putting it in a jar?
