Fumagilin-B has a high specific action against Nosema apis, a microscopic, single-celled parasite which causes Nosema disease in honey bees and is used as an aid in the prevention of Nosema in honey bees.
The treatment should be administered with autumn/fall and spring feeds as necessary and, as ever, it is vital that beekeepers follow label directions precisely.
Residents of Alberta are required to provide a PID to purchase this item.
If you have not already provided your PID, please add it to the notes portion of your online order.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
454g jar contains the equivalent of 9.5 g Fumagillin base which is sufficient to prepare 380 Litres of medicated syrup for feeding of 100-110 package colonies or for fall feeding of 50 wintering colonies.
96g jar contains the equivalent of 2.0 g Fumagillin base which is sufficient to prepare 80 Litres of medicated syrup for feeding of 22 package colonies or for fall feeding of 12 wintering colonies.
24g jar contains the equivalent of 0.5 g Fumagillin base which is sufficient to prepare 20 Litres of medicated syrup for feeding of 5-6 package colonies or for fall feeding of 3 wintering colonies.
Medicated syrup is best prepared at a concentration of 25 mg Fumagillin base per Litre of syrup, usually as a 2:1 syrup (two parts of sugar to one part of water). Fumagilin-B may be dissolved in water or syrup at room temperature. For best results, heat the required amount of water to 35-50˚C, then remove the heat source and add the Fumagilin-B and the sugar in that order. To prepare this concentration of medicated syrup, use the following chart:
Good agitation is essential to assure uniform distribution of the medication. For the protection of wintering colonies, medicated syrup is best fed in the fall if it is fed only once per year. There may be advantages to feeding medicated syrup in both the fall and the spring.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Fall Treatment: After all honey supers have been removed, feed medicated syrup at the following rates: 7-8 Litres for each 2 chamber colony (approximately 30,000 bees) 4 Litres for each 1 chamber colony (approximately 18,000 bees) 3 Litres for each 5 frame colony (approximately 12,000 bees) Feed additional unmedicated syrup to desired colony weight for wintering.
Spring Treatment: In the spring when colonies are stressed due to inclement weather conditions, mite infestations, other disease factors or intensive spring management, additional Nosema control may be indicated. In such cases, feed medicated syrup at the following rates: 3-4 Litres for each 2 chamber colony (approximately 20,000 bees) 2 Litres for each 1 chamber colony (approximately 12,000 bees) 1-2 Litres for each 5 frame colony (approximately 8,000 bees) 3-4 Litres for each package colony Feed additional unmedicated syrup to provide nourishment until nectar is available. Package bees may have been fed medicated syrup in transit, but such feeding alone is not sufficient to protect against Nosema. Each package colony is best fed Fumagilin-B immediately after installation. Colonies used for package production should be fed medicated syrup as a principle food source for one month prior to taking to market. Heavily infested colonies that will no longer take in syrup may be sprayed repeatedly, directly on the bees, frame by frame with a 1:1 sugar syrup (one part sugar to one part water) containing 2 g of Fumagilin-B per Litre of syrup.
WARNINGS: To avoid violative residues in honey, Fumagilin-B should be fed early in the spring or fall and consumed by the bees before the main honey flow begins. Complete treatments at least 4 weeks prior to the main honey flow. Honey collected in supers before the end of the 4 week withdrawal period should not be harvested for human consumption. Honey from brood nest areas of colonies treated with Fumagilin-B should not be harvested for human consumption. When handling the product, avoid inhalation, oral exposure and direct contact with skin or eyes. Keep out of reach of children.
STORAGE: Store below 25˚C, protected from sunlight. Keep from freezing. Once mixed, do not expose medicated syrup to sunlight.
