Does anyone know if Fischer's Bee Quick will be available this year?  It's great stuff.

Brushy Mountain has the small bottle in stock, but it doesn't come in the special polymer bottle (The bottle was a special made bottle that suppose to prolong storage, I think?) I'm sure someone will correct me if this isn't right :-D. Looks as though they are splitting up large quantities and packaging for resale.

But was still glad to get it. Said they would have gallons after first of year. This was in December.

Just spoke with Jim Fischer. He said they did a run in Jan. and all dealers should be well stocked by now. Expects to do another run in March.

I bought some from a couple of different places already this year. I haven't had anyone tell me they didn't have any in stock.

I read somewhere that someone had a formula for this. I think it used almond oil extract or something. I make my own syrup additive using essential oils and another for varroa-w-menthol so I imagine this is a good DIY project?

I hope this is true. I want to buy a gallon this year.

Must have to call about availability? All the web sites I've checked if they have it only stock the 7 oz bottle. I'd like to buy a gallon jug if possible. Anyone else try to buy a gallon jug since they started making it again?

Email Jim and ask which dealers are stocking gallons.

bee-quick@bee-quick.com

He is traveling, so it may be awhile before he fires up his laptop.
