So I just got a pint of Sucrocide... the insert that came in the bag with it to describe calculating your sprayer's output/second (and the ABJ article from which it was excerpted, which I have on file) says to mix to .25%. The Sucrocide bottle's label, however, states that a .625% solution is the correct dosage and the mixing directions are based accordingly. Two and a half times as strong!
The ABJ article says that bee mortality begins to manifest at .75%, which seems like a too-slow sprayer sweep away from .625%.
What's going on here, and what have folks used successfully?
