Final Late fall/early winter Varroa Mite Treatment with Oxalic Acid–Doesn’t have to be expensive…

While Oxalic Acid vaporizers work really well, you don’t have an expensive Oxalic Acid Vaporizer and can still easily do a late fall (or early winter) Oxalic Acid treatment to “clean up” some of the remaining mites on your colonies. It’s an organic treatment and more effective as the brood decreases later in the year. Here’s an article from Betterbee, https://www.betterbee.com/instructions-and-resources/how-to-do-an-oxalic-acid-dribble-treatment.asp. Also, here is a video on the Oxalic Acid Drip (note the video is in Canada, so you’ll want to take that into account when they say it’s their final treatment and are wrapping things up for the year). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdScP69gzhE
