Whoa there Poly Hive, you sound stressed. Put on your stripy shirt and sit in a cool dark peaceful place for an hour, with a wee dram if necessary, sip and swallow, no gargling.I am getting very confused indeed here Hivemaker.
I thought we were discussing thymol, and now lechithin is in the frame.
thanks for the info HM, is the above paragraph you mentioned treatment, was this thymolated syrup too (same as later feeding)?Okay,will start by saying last spring i tested every colony for nosema, had 20+ colonys with heavy nosema infection,started to treat in the very mild weather in feb, they all responded really well to treatment,some were later given complete comb changes,but not all,later in spring a few more colonys also got nosema that previously tested clear,obviously drinking from the same contaminated water supply that had been crapped over by some of the infected colonys,so every hive in the affected apairys were treated.
