Oxuvar 275g tub.    Enough for 6-15 colonies, depending on the size of the cluster.

How to use Oxuvar trickle application:

What is it: Liquid oxalic acid to be diluted with sugar and trickled onto the colony.

When to use it: Late Autumn/Winter (November to January) to brood-less colonies.

How to use it:

  • Dilute 1 part Oxuvar to 1 part sugar. There is space within the supplied packaging to allow this. Mixing Oxuvar with sugar may need to be done in a water bath to help the sugar dissolve.
  • Decant solution into a syringe.
  • Trickle over the bees sitting between the combs.
  • Consult the product label for the volume to be trickled for UK (Northern Europe) depending on hive type.
  • Best results are achieved when the bees remain within the hive after treatment.

Why use Oxuvar trickle applications:

  • Late season treatment to improve condition of colony going into winter.
  • Sugar solution will remain active for longer than spray or vaporising treatments due to hydroscopic sugar attracting water and maintaining solution.
