Surry County Cooperative Extension Office [ map ]

Dave Simpson will join us to explain everything you need to know about using the vaporization method with oxalic acid.  You’ll learn about what equipment you need, why you need to wear protective clothing, and why the number of times you need to treat are affected by what’s happening in the hive.

For folks who are not interested in purchasing the equipment necessary for vaporization but would like to try using oxalic acid in their hives, the drench (or dribble) method is also available.  Instructions are available under the “Resources” tab or by click this link:
