Fumagilin-B can be dissolved in water or syrup at room temperature but for best results, warm the required amount of water first (to 35-50 degrees Celsius), remove from the heat and then first add Fumagilin-B, followed by sugar, and mix well by agitation. Consult the product leaflet to ensure the correct quantities of Fumagilin-B and sugar.
Additional (unmedicated) sugar syrup may be provided after the medicated sugar syrup has been finished, to ensure sufficient nourishment is supplied to the bees as required.
