Hi everyone,

I have Apitraz to treat my colonies. I have two full size nationals and one 6 frame nuc. One of the nationals has partially filled a super with honey so if I can I would like to take that.

Would I be causing any issues if I put the Apitraz in my other national and the nuc now, then waited until the super comes off the other colony before treating that one?

This is all because I can't treat the colony with honey just yet. Am I best waiting until later and doing all at the same time?

I would not personally be worried about delaying the treatment of one stock.
