Interestingly my Dipel has a use by date of 2021 and I’m still using it,
I had a dead out a month or so ago which was infested with wax moth so I decided to test it’s efficacy. I gave the brood box a good spray from above,closed it up and 4 weeks later there was no sign of any live moth in there.
Yes ... my tub is even older and it's still working. The key is to keep it in the original tub, somewhere cool and dark I think. I tend to give a the boxes a belt of sulphur burning to start with but then the Dipel keeps them safe later on.
