they certainly were Trev, next year if we could have eggs, snags, hash browns  and coffee with them that'll be great.

Finished wiring frames for the year today. Not my favourite job but you can just listen to music and it goes pretty quick if you get in the zone. Precipitated down heavily all-day but we needed it.

I think this is what Toyota call a ‘Bgr’ moment.

It was so dry round here before the rain that even the sea level had gone down by a couple of meters.

More info please! This would be most excellent news if it works. Cheers

Hi sorry missed that.

You need 80ml of 80-85% formic acid per 100l volume. I put only  7 frames per box to ensure good evaporation of the formic acid. On the top box, I putt my Nassenheider with the biggest wick and a plastic foil to seal the top box. I do a second treatment after 7 days that's it.
