Thinking of buying a oa vaporizer to treat with this fall. I have 2 questions I read you can buy oa from ebay or ace hardware, checking on both places, on ebay a 12 oz. pail is selling for $7-8 on the ace website it looks the same pail and says $125 is there haz. fees on shipping from ebay, or something I am missing? Also was wondering if oa does anything against shb ?

No need to buy OA on the internet. I bought my little pail of "Savogran" brand wood bleach from Ace Hardware for around $7. It was in the paint section. The transaction was super simple and cheap. For my dozen hives, it should last a few decades.

I bought a 10lb bag for less than 20 bucks. Free shipping.

This is not the same add, but it's just like it.

Look again, that's for a 12 pack. Most hardware stores should have it in singles. I got mine at my local "Do it Best" hardware.

Unfortunately, it does not..........
Mix oxalic acid with water at a 1:1 concentration. Drop in a SHB. I bet it would dissolve it. :lpf:
