The Buzz About Bees
A Look at Oxalic Acid for Treating Mites

A Look at Oxalic Acid for Treating Mites

January 22, 2020

I try to keep this podcast about topics that beekeepers & non-beekeepers can both enjoy, but this was a topic I thought deserved its own episode. Sorry non beekeepers.

Oxalic acid is a popular treatment for varroa mites, but was only approved to be used in the U.S. in 2015.

This episode talks about what oxalic acid is, the different methods it's used in the hive and my experience using it. Since my bees are in Hawaii where the weather is always warm and there is always brood present in the hive, my experience was very different than most.
