While more and more chemical are used to combat deseases and mite, could some of them impregnated into bee wax and caused death of larvea? It could be good to disperse these information for the benefit of beekeeper. Some chemical that I am using are:
1. Fluvalinate
2. Oxalic acid
3. Tetracyclene
4. Chosmophoros (spelling?)
5. Sodium hydrochoride
6. Formic acid

Yes.  More so they interfere with having viable drones and viable queens.  Fertility is a big issue.

>1. Fluvalinate
Builds up in the wax.

>2. Oxalic acid
Oxalic already exists in the honey. It doesn't build up in the wax and the amounts in the honey are within the limits of what is usually there anyway.  How good it is for the bees or larvae during the treatment, is another issue.

>3. Tetracyclene
Leaves residue in the honey.

>4. Chosmophoros (spelling?)
Cumaphos, residue accumulates in the wax.  Is an organophosphate.  In sufficient amounts, will kill bees and humans.  The amount that affects humans is not much over the amount that kills mites.

>5. Sodium hydrochoride
Like bleach?

>6. Formic acid
See Oxalic acid above.

Yes, a kind of antiseptic. Some beekeepers use to steralise wooden box or equipment.

Thanks Micheal.

Chlorine bleach will not cause any longterm problems.  Bees seem quite fond of chlorinated swimming pool water and I've never seen any harm to the bees other than drowning the pool.
