An Outstanding Heavy Duty Oxalic Acid Vaporizer at a Great Price!! This is the one Randy Oliver on his website http://scientificbeekeeping.com says is “One of the highest-ranked models,” and is the one you’ll pass down to your son. If you have more than 10 hives or just want the very best, this is the one for you. The pan is made of stainless steel, which allows an even and controlled transfer of the heat, thus preventing the overheating of the oxalic acid. Oxalic acid that is overheated decays and builds formic acid and CO2 thus reducing efficacy very fast and significantly. The vaporization of oxalic acid in beehives is a proven method of killing both Varroa & Tracheal mites. This vaporizer comes with “side” wings that serve to keep the vaporizer from overturning in the hive. Load the cup of the vaporizer with one gram (per brood chamber) of oxalic acid (wood bleach that you can purchase on EBay or at your Ace hardware store where it is labeled Savogran) insert it in the hive and connect it to any 12 volt car battery. The vaporization will complete in 2 1/2 minutes. Disconnect the vaporizer and leave it in the hive for a minute more to seal in the vapors and you’re finished! Remove it from the hive, DUNK in a pail of water (no need to use a wet rag or sponge (but you can)) & you’re ready for your next hive! Oxalic acid vapors only kill the mites that are on the bees (phoretic,) not in the brood. With the hive almost broodless in late fall or early winter, that is an excellent time to treat. If the outside temperature is 40 degrees (f) or above, you can safely vaporize. With other treatment methods, you need to purchase them over & over and at substantial cost. With vaporization, you have a one time cost for the vaporizer and the treatments are almost pennies per treatment.
