Finman are you saying a shook swarm is a waste of time because in Finland you dont have enough time to recover due to the short harvest time?
Sugar dusting was developed in Helsinki University Finland and you Admin have surely seen that it does not work and it is hobby level job.Finman are you in the "sugar dusting does not work" camp?
That surely will take over a month. Is there time to do that between the temperature getting high enough for it to be effective, two Apiguard treatments, time for Thymol to clear from hives, before putting on supers?I use Apiguard
Does that mean the mid-winter trickle?Our spring treatment in Finland is recommended: WHEN THE MAIN TREATMENT DID NOT WORKED
Does anyone else use Formic acid in spring? How long does it take?1) The second trickling after cleansing flight with OA (yes, you see right)
2) thymol gasifying when day temp is over 15C
3) formic acid gasifying when day temp is over 15C
