Varrox Vaporizer - Oxalic Acid Vaporizer

This vaporizer uses oxalic acid to treat hives for varroa mites. A great tool for apiaries with several hives, as a treatment will take approximately 2.5 minutes.  The pan is made of stainless steel, which allows an even and controlled transfer of the heat, thus preventing the overheating of the oxalic acid.

This vaporizer comes with “side” wings that serve to keep the vaporizer from overturning in the hive. Load the cup of the vaporizer with one gram (per brood chamber) of oxalic acid insert it in the hive and connect it to any 12 volt car battery. The vaporization will complete in 2 1/2 minutes. Disconnect the vaporizer and leave it in the hive for a minute more to seal in the vapors and you're finished! Remove it from the hive, submerse in a pail of water and you're ready for your next hive! If any residue remains in the cup after treatment, scrape it out with a stick or other blunt object. Remember to seal the hive for 10 minutes after you remove the vaporizer to lock in the vapors.
