  1. Also this is also new and inproving all the time. I have not touched our vaporizer since last year I only did half my hives with the ovaboard last winter, they all came through the winter and never looked back. In the end I threw the vaporizer in the shed no more gen set noise ect. I don't have enough experience with the Gib tape the ones I used my mix on did ok some just hummed the ones that had the stiff brew got knocked back but don't have verroa. I have used towels and different cardboards ect . Me and Nan stiched up 3 layer Gib tape and gave it a go I've not used Phills strips but I may need to give them a go if there's a art in making the strips this way . I use ovaboard as I can make it in the quantity I need and I use the mix from Argentina as that's what got me started on this. It is all good stuff but it is experimental you have to make sure it works for you. My bees may work better with oxcalic but I now feel like I don't need to worry about resistance when it happens
  2. I don't use more than %30 but I don't use Gib tape with the ovaboard that's the strongest I've used . I tried using phills mix that was 50/50 on Gib tape but it hammered the hives I think that Phill had worked out that there was a difference in the mix.
