has any one brought there oxy strips back to life after pulling perfectly good strips from the hives, can they be resoaked and reused, just wandering as i keep shifting the buckets of them around the shed, bee keen to hear your thoughts.
Even if you re-soak them? Wouldn't that act as a recharge to the ingredient levels?Good question.. my gut says no because they will no doubt still contain some ingredients at unknown levels and those ingredients may be degraded.
I’ve got a dozen odd buckets in my shed as well.. but just use the new ones for each treatment to be safe.
I also had the feeling I was going off track with the composting topic, so good to have that as a separate one.Even if you re-soak them? Wouldn't that act as a recharge to the ingredient levels?
This topic is asking if you can use them again after soaking them.
The composing was a bit off track so I made a new question about it.
I'll mix the latest bucket I collected into my compost heap and see what happens (this is a bucket of leftover bits ranging from very small pieces to in tact staples). I can't see any issues with my 3 ingredient staples (paper, oxalic acid and glycerine). I'll let you know how it goes...nzbees.net
