only problem with OA is that it's not approved for use in the US.  if you are going to market your honey, it can be a problem to use OA.  there was just a company caught using it, but i don't remember which one.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Is oxalic acid a pesticide?  The container I got says "wood bleach."  I like my frames to be white and bright . . .  rolleyes

How about some good ole biochemical miticide sucrocide, three treatments, spread 7-10 days apart?.............just to knock down the mite load and get it back under control.  I would do this rather than take a chance of loosing the hives.  Once they've bounced back, I'd rethink the apiguard application and make sure I applied it correct.



oh yeah...........EPA approved for use in bee hives

Good-luck!
