Thanks in advance for your help.
I've got serious diarrhea in my observation hive.
I'm assuming the bees have nosema and I have gotten fumigilan to treat.
My biggest question is will the fumigilan cure the sick bees or just prevent infection in the ones that remain healthy. It doesn't look like there are too many of those. Am I fighting a losing battle?
I opened the hive 2 days ago, removed the frames and put in fresh foundation, so they've got no comb now. I cleaned the hive with boiling water and put my remaining girls back in. After one day the hive is stinking and smeared with brown drips.
What do you think? Also what dosage of fumigilan and sugar:water ratio should I use?
Thanks for any advice
