I hope that you do not try on hives all those methods what you get in mind.  They are tens.

In these discussions are mentioned methods which are not under common control researches. Vinegar is a such.
I wonder where all these ideas will  lead us.

Treatments' purpose is to kill mites. There is narrow area between mite and bee killing, and brood killing.

I am going to stay inside area "officially controlled knowledge". That is more than enough for one beekeeper.

  Finsky;  Are you saying that your country has not researched vinegar as a method to control varroa mites   Charlie

Is there research anywhere? If so where?

 Jerrymac; Research was done on the vinegar vaporizer in the mid 1980s by the manufacturer prior to it being placed on the market in 1989. It is manufactured in Altoona Iowa.   Charlie

I've seen the adds in Bee Culture and ABJ. Very interesting topic. The next obvious question, Are there any other beeks using this method and what are there observations and thoughts? I like info backed up w/ research. But that is not always needed. This might be one of those times.

 Jerrymac; I probably should have been more clear in my answer to your question. In the mid 1980s the manufacturer of the cyclone vinegar vaporizer conducted research to determine what affect vaporized vinegar,circulated through the bee colony would have on the varroa mite, tracheal mite and other in hive pests. This research was done in Altoona Iowa. This was done prior to marketing the machine in 1989. Charlie

  mici; this vaporizer has nothing to do with oxalic acid, as oxalic acid is not approved for use in honey bee colonies in this country (U.S.A.)  Its only made to vaporize vinegar, nothing else.

After i vaporize the hive Oops, I mean use the vaporizer what happens to the beetles. Do they just drop dead and the bees carry them out or what? Will be trying it out on 1 hive this weekend
