    I use 0.25 gram/gallon as a mold preventative. It also happens to coincide with a concentration of 0.44 mM thymol which is what was used in a 3-year study done in Turkey comparing its effectiveness with that of fumidil. I have never used it as a varroa treatment so I can't comment on that. I also use thymolated syrup when I mix my pollen patties, again as a mold preventative. Some have questioned how effective Thymol treatment is on Nosema since the results of the Turkey study have not officially been duplicated. I have chosen to use it over other mold preventatives in the hopes that there is some validity to that study. For a raging verified active Nosema infestation, it still seems that fumidil is the only treatment that provides a more verifiable immediate result.

    Question, can fumidil be added to syrup that contains thymol,without affecting the effectivness of the fumidil. Would make the treatment even better if they can be combined.

    That is a good question, for which I have no answer. I have envisioned a treatment regime that uses both on an alternating basis, but I think I would be reluctant to combine them in the same syrup without a definitive answer to your question.
