This medication is for treating nosema. I do not believe drenching bees with it would have the desired effect.It is not a mticide or for any parasite external to the bee.It is recommended to be mixed with sugar syrup to be consumed by the bees.
Do not expose the syrup,medicine mixture to sunlight as it reduces the medication available.
