A perfect performer for any beekeeper on a budget! This Mann Lake exclusive vaporizer is safe for your bees, but deadly to varroa mites! Side wing design prevents the vaporizer from tipping in the hive. Requires a 12 volt car battery for operation and safety equipment such as a respirator, safety glasses, and gloves. Oxalic acid and battery not included. Made in the USA!
Why use Oxalic Acid Vaporization? Numerous studies show it is 90-99% effective at killing phoretic (physically on the bees) varroa mites. Because oxalic acid only kills these varroa mites and not those in the brood, it is usually used for treatment in the late fall or early winter when brood count is low but the temp is above 40° F. OAV treatments do not require you to open the hive or any installation and removal of medicated strips, making it a simple and easy but highly effective varroa mite treatment plan.
