Hi loooking for opinions,

If I have used Thymol mix or Apiguard treatment in October
and there is a super on the hive
1. can the super box and frames be used for honey stores next season with or without burning out / boiling or not used at all again for honey?

2.can the wax be used again for honey production/ foundation wax for super frames or not at all for honey ?

I hope this makes sense as iappreciate your opinions :grouphug:

Hi,
according to the bee inspector it can leave a slight residue, even in honey which has been capped.

Hi

Thymol can taint honey but that's why you don't treat with a crop on!!!
and having tasted some honey when this has been done by another:puke:

Buffalow: Any aroma will pass, I have used it over a number of years and have no probs, if you are talking about some micro trace of thymol itself well that I can't honestly say.


Regards Ian
