Treatment for the Crud

The Crud responds well to Terramycin. The pic is one example of a pre-mixed powder. The Terramycin is pre-mixed with BeePro pollen substitute. Always follow the label for proper dosage and application instructions. Supers are off the hive when using this product. The label gives the timing of when they can be put back on.
Applying Terramycin
Always apply Terramycin to the outside edges of the brood nest.
 Terramycin does break down quickly in the hive. Tylan on the other hand has a longer break down period. Both are safe to use and are FDA and EPA approved for treating honeybees.
