Randy Oliver describes their process of treating for mites in their newly made up nucs as follows.
Make up nucs, insert ripe cells, and around day 19-21, after the queens are laying, but before their brood is capped, treat with an oxalic dribble.
Has anyone done this with oav as opposed to the dribble? How does it work? Are there any potential downsides to using oav rather than a dribble?
