I got a call from the state Apiary Board here in Arkansas today about the Oxalic Acid.
I was told that even though it is approved by the feds it has to be sent to each state.
The state will then see what chemical is to be used whether liquid, granule or powder.
The state will decide which chemical to use and how to administer it.
The Oxalic Acid has to have on the container that it is approved for use of honey bees.
In other words you can't go to the hardware store and buy it.
The chemical company has to register their product in the state and label it approved for treatment of honeybees.
Until then it is illegal to use it here in Arkansas.
They are going to put a label with wording for use with honeybee treatment and jack the price up.
That is what was told to me today from the Arkansas State Apiary Board.
