Does anyone have an extra formic acid treatment available for purchase?  I have a neighbor that needs to treat one of her hives.  Call or text 505-503-5587.  Debbie

Hi Debbie!

I have some, but I'm afraid it may be too cold now to use formic acid.  "Outside daytime highs should be between 50 - 85°F on day of application. The Formic Acid vapors get moved throughout the hive by the bees fanning and bringing fresh air in through the entrance, so if it's too cold and the bees are clustered, full efficacy will not be reached" -Lappes Bee Supply

If you still like to use some despite the cold temps let me know.  My number is 575-496-0518.
