    Are there strong opinions on Fumagillin B (think they call it that) .

    Is that a must for fall and spring treatment? I was going to buy some today but the shop owner said that he sells about 3 small bottles a year.

    I'm trying to determine if it's worth my time and money.

    thanks, Mike

    I my self would not skip it but that is me and I lost 63% of 128 hives the year that Nosema Crena hit our area. I was Lucky a frind lost 420 out of 510 hives.
