Oxysol-62.5 is a concentrated water-soluble antibiotic used for the prevention of Foul Brood in bees. It contains the powerful antibiotic Oxytetracycline HCL which suppresses American Foul Brood and controls European Foul Brood without harming bees. Mix with syrup the day of feeding and be protected from foul Brood for up to two weeks. A similar product, Oxytet, is no longer available.
As of December 1, 2018, a new regulation has been enforced by Health Canada, requiring beekeepers to obtain a veterinarian’s prescription for bee antibiotics.
Dancing Bee Equipment has established a relationship with Dr. Kyle Goldie, a veterinarian and beekeeper. Dr. Goldie is able to, upon establishing a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship (VCPR), prescribe antibiotics for you as beekeepers, allowing continuity of your on-going management strategy.
Prescriptions from other veterinarians will also be accepted at the discretion of Dancing Bee Equipment. A strong requirement is that your veterinarian is highly knowledgeable in honey bee diseases including treatments & dosage.
We encourage you to take advantage of this service and treat your colonies per the recommendations of the Provincial Apiarist.
