IF you follow the directions when applying it you can use the honey.
Because, if he had he wouldn't have used TM while honey supers were on, right honeyman?

Whose rules are being asked about? Federal or State Law? Or what? Or are you asking how bad or how much exposure to TM would there be if you harvested ther honey?

When did you apply the TM? How did you apply the TM? Where did you apply it? What amount did you apply? What ratio of TM to powdered sugar did you use? Did you use powdered sugar?

Reality is the bees move things around all the time. So if you feed TM it will be in you honey even if you didn't have the supers on... but the rule is you don't have supers on when you feed it so that you can pretend that doesn't happen...

From a packer-"Terramycin breaks down quickly when exposed to moisture so after a month it will not be detectable in honey"

Is this a fact? I don't know but I have heard this from other beekeepers(commercial) also.
