    Default How much Fumigilin-B to add to 1 gallon?

    Can someone tell me how much Fumigilin-B to add per gallon? The mixing instructions are kinda torn off the small bottle. Food is mixing on stove now, and would like to go ahead and add this tonight.

    Is it like 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon or something? The label has been torn

    Thanks so much

    1teaspoon to 1 gallon. Wait until the syrup cools. Also, mix the fumigillin with a cup or so of water first to get it to mix/dissolve. Store the syrup out of direct light.

    Thank you Thanks also for the tips! How many times do I medicate them with the Fumigilin-B? Is this just one feeding?

    Well, that is a good link Lburou. Why in another recent beesource post did the the writers say to pre-mix Fumagiln B in cool water not above 85 degrees before adding to heavy syrup? Now I am confused. linn

    There must be some degradation above 25* C, that is the only thing on my label.
