  • Oxalic Acid Vapouriser 4

    Posted by Melva Ward on 8th Mar 2024

    Well built piece of equipment, heavy leads and quite long which is probably good for most beekeepers. I think it could be a little bit shorter from the handle to the bowl so it does not tend to tip out, and my last vabouriser had the rod coming out of the centre of the bowl so it stayed flat. I do have a question, what is the little bit of flat metal for. I have attempted to find a video of how to use it hoping to see what that piece of metal is for. All up I think it is a very good product.

    The finish is not the best example is where the wire's are crimped to the clips, no instructions in the box, and you will need at least a 12 volt battery capable of at least 10 amps. I suspect it is Chinese made cheap and cheerful, you get what you pay for
