To prevent nosema: In a small jar half filled with lukewarm water, add one teasoon of Fumidil. Shake the jar until dissolved. Stir the jar's contents into 1 gallon of cooled sugar syrup solution you use to feed your bees. Feed at the top of the hive using a hive-top feeder

I wasn't asking what Fumagilin-B was used for. I wasn't asking how to introduce the medicine into the syrup. I wasn't even asking what book you read, even though it's a good one! :-)
What I was asking was how many GRAMS to introduce into each gallon of syrup. What I was asking was how many grams of the powder to introduce into one gallon of syrup.
I have read that one tsp=5g (of Fumagilin-B). But Grams are a measure of weight and teaspoons are a measure of volume. I think that Fumagilin-B is about the consistency of powdered sugar, maybe finer. So according to this: Cooking Calculator
5 Grams are TWO
teaspoons. Can anyone help me out on this?
Anybody have a gram scale?
