Bayvarol is not now recommended as in most areas varroa has become resistant to it.

I use it in all the thick syrup fed in autumn ...yes....like to get at least 1 gallon into a full size colony before the ivy starts,the less of that they collect the better.

The only lecithin I could find was in a large tub at Holland and Barrett.
Never mind, I can eat the rest to keep my cholesterol down.

Summary of a conversation with H&B person:

Self: do you have any smaller pots of this?
H&B-P: ohh, you'll get through this quite quickly
Self: I don't think I will
H&B-P: you should be eating quite a reasonable amount each day
Self: I'm not going to eat any of it - it's to emulsify thymol in sugar syrup
H&B-P: ...no, we don't have any smaller pots...

That might be the case in England but not so in most of Northern Ireland and Southern Ireland. I believe we are approx 7 to 9 yrs behind the mainland on the varroa scene. So Bayvarol is still working for us. :hurray:

I've had a hell of a mite drop after Apiguard on two hives - must be in the tens of thousands over the four weeks (see picture). Want to add thymol to feed syrup but can't find Hivemakers recipe. Help please.
