I did a search of the forums and didn't see a definite answer, but I was wondering if anybody knows if it's OK to do OAV treatments with hive top feeders in place, or bis it best to remove them for a couple of hours first?

Compared to the exposure from Oxalic Acid dribble, I think OA uptake would be negligible. I have done lots of applications with them on and certainly not away of any negative consequences. If the feeders have been on for a while there will be a fair bit of burr and ladder comb underneath and lots of bees in that comb construction. Would be quite disruptive to Re. and Re.
