    Oxalic and glycerine

    It was a few years ago now Phill before Scott towels ect they work very well. I believe that there's more to it than oxcalic and glycerin sooked in overboard strips, but it's the closest thing I can get to it the new Gib packing strips things are in hives at the moment look good.

    Oxalic and glycerine

    EPA approval is required to sell the strips as a varroaside like other treatments. The name on the approval is not who we did the tests for but same stuff. As it's listed as a treatment it will be legal to use and sell it will be interesting to see the conditions of use doc as it's classed as a organic treatment in it's home country with little restrictions. Sorry for the late reply I was playing with some new toys

    Ignorant People selling Garbage Bees

    I have a computer full of files I've sent through to assure quality they are very busy down here at the moment. Yes the more you know the more hopeless I feel sometimes. I've got to meet some really good beeks that are doing the same thing helping the guys getting taken for a ride so this is good. Sometimes it takes a bit off time to reap what you sow ether good or bad.

    Ignorant People selling Garbage Bees

    We get to pick up the pieces often from people getting ripped off not just AFB infected nucs but half arsed nucs walk,away nucs hives sold that would not even be classed as a nuc unfortunately the list goes on. People need to be informed if the seller will not show you through the hive/nuc ECT walk away take someone with you if you are unsure make sure they are registered get there reg number. One case recently someone on Facebook made some comments looking for a nuc as there hive had died, so I asked if they would mind if I come and had a look first. When I got there the guy apologies saying that the bees have come back and are busy I opened the hive and it's dripping AFB from the few frames that where tossed in and sold as a two box hive in the process of getting robbed. The guy was told he didn't need to register as he was only a hobby beek. Makes my blood boil I hate the fact the dodgy low life's are giving everyone a bad name and are happy to inflict this on new beeks.
