Very interesting Trev On the face of it, it appears to have parallels with Oxalic Acid treatment but in a simpler and more efficient form. Do you or Neil have any comments regarding an overall comparison between the two types of treatment.

They work on a somewhat similar action, with vaporization. In my opinion this is another tool in the fight against varroa. It is certainly not the only tool to have. Just another tool. It is over to individuals to work out for themselves the efficacy of this type of treatment. I do of know of any comparison work between OA and FGMO

Thanks Trev for uploading the video, I have used a fogger obtained from Neil for many years now and yes I fog my hives every time I go to my apiary. As a hobbyist I couldn't think of anything simpler to have in the boot of the car. I also do the spring and Autumn strip treatments. Keep up the good work

I have used a fogger for several years. Simple and easy to use every time I check the hives. Well it's actually my 9 year old sons job mostly. We still use stripes spring and autumn but touch wood have never had a major varroa problem. Thanks for the video.
