Re: European Foulbrood: not recovering on own during honeyflow
Skinner: I generally agree with your post though I do question your assertion that tylosin stays stable in liquid for 3 years. If that is true then all the more reason to be careful with it. In my mind any hive fed tylosin in a liquid should not be used for honey production that season at all. I was told by a honey buyer for a major packer who does considerable testing that by far the highest readings they see are by those who feed with tylosin in a liquid. Why is tylan never fed in a dry mixture with powdered sugar and a pollen supplement? It seems to me that would best encourage feeding only to the young larvae and lessen the chances it might end up in stored honey.
