Refer to an animal care specialist for guidelines on dosage. Do not exceed what they advise, and complete the full treatment, as stopping early can result in a recurrence or worsen the problem.
24 hours for chickens from last treatment. Do not use in layers producing eggs for human consumption.
5 days for turkeys from the last treatment, 48 hours for swine from the last treatment and lastly, ug should be fed early in the spring or fall and consumed by the bees before the main honey flow begins, to avoid contamination of production honey.
