    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.

    So when I drench I do one bottle in 1 gallon of water mix that with SW up to 5 gallons and then soak the bee's with it once a week for 3 weeks. Or once ever 7 days for 3 weeks. Should do about 80+ hives.

    I'm feeding sugar syrup according to the instructions in this link. three fourths of a gallon each week for a month (for five frame NUCS).

    I messed up my measurements this year. I did a couple of gallons of water 1:1 and added a tablespoon per gallon. The only consolation that I had was that I tried to split it over 5 hives and 4 nucs. I just figured I would get them started due to shelf life and add it again this next weekend.
    I did the same post last year and after re reading the answer and looking at the links I still got it wrong. I always think I am not the brightest bulb in the box but seem I am not the only one that is confused by the search results. Why can’t they do the directions a little more plain? Great if I am mixing a barrel but I do not have a big enough pot for that.
