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.

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

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!
