This is a question to those of you that fog your bees with FGMO.
I'm just starting with Bees this year.  My first Nuc is scheduled to be picked up this weekend.  In this area V-mites and T-mites are the biggest problem reported by my two nearby Beekeeps (10 & 12 miles East and West of me) followed by Hive beetles.  I'm interested in getting a fogger (neither of the two nearby Beekeeps fog) and want to get the best I can afford (read as inexpensive as possible yet quality) with capability of working up to fifty hives (Got big dreams) or more.
Which Brand and Model do you recommend? Smiley

I can't recommend a fogger since I haven't used one in years.  But I can tell you that getting or breeding for tracheal resistant bees is not difficult, and the best for the long run.

I bought one this year. Sorry to say that I have been too busy to use it but I do have good intentions. Here is what I purchased from LOWES:
