Stan asked about Oxalic treatment with brood:

I recently posted by blog in regards to treating with oxalic acid.

The results were very good with brood present. I use 700 grams in a 5 gallon bucket of distilled water and try to get 
5 ml per seam per box if they are stacked. Quick.

I took out a newbee and did five mite rolls as we went through 3 yards of 80 hives each. I didn't roll *any* mites. This roll is after two weeks from treatment date. Of course I will find them, but liked what I saw. 

I am all about *very low* mite counts for successful beekeeping. We do treat often with rotations if possible.
