So yesterday I fired up the smoker for the first time in a long time to take a peak at a few colonies to assess the value of an oxalic vape at this stage in the game.
I was delighted to see all the colonies I looked at seemed in fine condition, good numbers and weight, all but one of them that I checked had sealed brood though so I thought better of doing a round with the sublimox.
This was in a location at about 400 feet in the teifi valley, west Wales.
 
I saw a fair amount of brood debris under most of mine when I had a look last week.
