The Varrox Oxalic Acid Vaporizer is heavy duty at an affordable price! Made of stainless steel, the Varrox Vaporizer is durable while also controlling an even heat for vaporization. Proving important because overheated Oxalic Acid creates formic acid and CO2 which reduces its efficacy. Side wing design prevents the vaporizer from tipping in the hive. Requires a 12 volt battery. Instructions included. Oxalic acid and battery not included.
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.
