I was wondering if anyone had any experience in treating bees in a standard size nuc box with formic acid as a Spring treatment? I’m thinking maybe using just ¼ of what you would nomally use on a two story hive. It would probably be safer to use Apistan but I’m trying to get away from using Apistan.
