Terra-Pro is a medicated feed mix which contains Terramycin™, Bee-Pro®, sucrose and other vitamins and minerals. It is recommended as an aid in the control of American and European Foulbrood. Terra-Pro should be fed early in the spring and fall and should be consumed by the bees before main honey flow begins.
For spring treatment, use 2 level tablespoons (approx. 200 mgs of Oxytetracycline) of Terra-Pro mix around the edges and ends of brood frames and top bars of the brood chamber. Fall treatment consists of 2 level tablespoons of Terra-Pro around the hole of the inner cover of the hive. Three applications at 4 - 5 day intervals in spring and fall are needed. Comes with a convenient measuring spoon.
A Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) is required for purchase of Tetra Bee Mix.
A VFD is a written statement issued by a licensed veterinarian. It allows the use of oxytetracycline or other VFD drugs in or on animal feed. Anyone who wants to use oxytetracycline is required to obtain a VFD from his or her veterinarian before purchasing or using any related antibiotics, and may only use the antibiotics for prevention, control or treatment of specific diseases - in this case, American and European foulbrood.Please call Customer Service at 1-800-233-2899 to order.
