I'm just about to put on the first of the the treatments to Hivemaker's recipe, using Admin's tissues instead of oasis.

Do I place the tissue in a container on top of the top bars or just put the tissue straight on?

Thanks
Peter

As long as its not dripping wet, i would place it straight on the top bars....athough i have never used tissue....the oasis goes straight on the top bars exactly the same as apilif var......it's good when the bee's chew/shred it, a bit like the cords,helps to distribute the thymol oil around the colony by contact.
