Mixing And Use Directions For Honey Bees

Due to the high drug concentration of this product, an intermediate mixture must be prepared for use in bees. To prepare this intermediate mixture add 7 lb of Terramycin 100MR to 200 lb of powdered sugar and mix well. This mixture contains approximately 200 mg of oxytetracycline hydrochloride activity per oz.

Dusting Directions: Apply 1 oz (200 mg oxytetracycline) of this mixture per colony. Apply the dust on the outer parts or ends of the frames.

Syrup Directions: Use 1 oz (200 mg oxytetracycline) of this mixture per 5 lb jar containing 1:1 sugar syrup (equal parts sugar and water w/w) per colony. Dissolve in a small quantity of water before adding to syrup. Bulk feed the syrup using feeder pails or division board feeders or by filling the combs. Prepare fresh syrup for each application.

Administer in 3 applications of sugar syrup or 3 dustings at 4- to 5-day intervals. The drug should be fed in the spring or fall and consumed by the bees before main honey flow begins to avoid contamination of production honey.

Extender Patty Directions: Use 4 oz (800 mg oxytetracycline) of this mixture mixed with 165 g of vegetable shortening (Crisco® or equivalent) and 330 g of sugar. The patties are placed on the top bars of the brood nest frames.

Contraindication: Dusting of uncapped brood cells has been reported to cause death of larval honey bees. Do not dust uncapped brood cells.

WARNING: This mixture should be fed in the spring or fall and consumed by the bees before main honey flow begins to avoid contamination of production honey. Honey stored during medication periods in combs for surplus honey should be removed following final medication of the bee colony and must not be used for human food. Honey from bee colonies likely to be infected with foulbrood should not be used for preparation of medicated syrup supplements since it may be contaminated with spores of foulbrood and may result in spreading the disease. Remove at least 6 weeks before main honey flow. Do not use in a manner contrary to state apiary laws and regulations. Each state has specific regulations relative to disease control and medications. Contact the appropriate official or state departments of agriculture for specific Inter- and Intrastate laws and regulations.
