    I would say a lot. If you follow the recipe in the article it comes to 1 liter. 1000cc is the same as 1 liter. CC is the same as ML. Any measuring cup for the most part has a ml measurement. I stole my wifes Pyrex glass measurer and it works well. Myself and another beekeeper friend sprayed about 10 hives this weekend and I would say it did not hardly put a dent in our liter. Wal-Mart will order you a 100 gram bottle of Thymol crystal for just under $20.00. Thats unough for 2 liters. I had the pharmacy weigh it and divide it into two parts 50 grams and 50 grams. I made one batch following the recipe and I have enough for another when I get ready.

    I fogged 25 hives all year on about a quart of FGMO. Without the Thymol.
