Too many - but not nearly enough
If only you knew, it went wild during lockdown... And the mushrooms season is about to start! ;)
I remember when the first mobile phone mast went up there - the locals danced naked around it all day and night for nigh on a month!

some + a few more
I used a home made vapouriser for a few years powered by a blowtorch made out of plumbing fittings.
Never noticed any issues with the decomposition of OA while treating the bees.
I had to cool it before reloading it before every use.
Use a sublimox now it's much quicker and easier.
