Article in ABJ written by Jerry Hayes
Jerry said Oxalic Acid is over used in the US ,OAV is hard on bees and repeated treatments shorten
The life of the Queen.
What are the findings of Beekeepers in Vermont that use OAV?
If you are treating multiple times are you replacing your Queens yearly?
How effective do you find OAV in controlling Varroa Mites ?
Do you use a different produt that you feel is more effective then OAV?
Say you used MAQS in Aug or Sept would OAV be a good follow up treatment in November or December as a follow up if needed ?

Do you treat more then one time a year ? If so what do you use ?
Do you do pretreatment and post treatment mite counts ?
How many times a year do you do a mite count ?

Thanks for your time
