Easy to use convenient formulation. Simply add at a ratio of 1 to 1 with either water or sugar depending on application method.

How to Use

TRICKLE TREATMENT:

3. Close the container and shake until the sugar is dissolved.

4. Apply the solution whilst it is still lukewarm.

5. Apply a maximum of 50 ml per hive (3-4 ml per occupied row for small hives [National or WBC] or 5-6 ml per occupied row for larger hives [Danant])

Note: If warmer temperatures are being experienced (above 8°C) a spray application of Oxuvar 5.7% may be more suitable.
