Don't think I've seen anything here about this. I tried doing a forum search and a google search but nothing came up. I'm excited about the possibility. Those ingredients are readily available and seems easy to put together. I am hesitant to try it out. This year I'm going to try queen rearing and am planning on expanding my apiary. Some adverse event would ruin all of that. The initial reports however have been mostly promising.

I know that there has already been wide use of oxalic acid as a vapor and drizzle. Randy's sit seems to indicate that his bees seemed to prefer the acidic environment. Does anybody know how temperature and humidity alter the effects and safety of oxalic acid?  I'd imagine the weather for a spring treatment in my neck of the woods is vastly different from a spring treatment in Randy's neck of the woods.
Keeping bees since 2011.

Also please excuse the typos.  My iPad autocorrect can be brutal.
