Nobody has any until mid/late September at the earliest, which could be too late if the weather turns cold. I'm squirting the bees with Vitafeed Gold which purports to be almost as good as Fumidil B at Nosema control. Does anybody have any experience of Vitafeed Gold and it's efficacy, please?

Use thymol in your syrup. Also there was an interesting thread on the You-know-who forum about using chlorinated bleach in syrup for the same purpose...and stopping it from fermenting/growing mould too.

But I didn't go there and see it :ack2:

I am told Nosema Apis is endemic, with Nosema Ceranae (sp?) spreading. (Spring Convention Lecture) and only two significant remedies.

1. Fumidil-B, but worries about resistance build-up.

2. Thymol widely reported to help keep effects to a minimum.

Perhaps Bcrazy knows something from his studies ???
