I need to feed desperately. Also need to do an OAV treatment. Can we leave our 2:1 syrup feed in the hive while treating with vaporization?

Yes. Any OA pickup by the syrup would be very dilute compared to the natural oxalic acid content of honey.

I don't see why not. There would be frames with in the hive that would be nector anyway. How ever you are feeding, just ensure that there is a good seal to keep the vapor in.
