Fumigilin-B

Unread post by cgybees » April 12th, 2018, 2:32 pm

Medivet, the Canadian producer of Fumigilin-B, has announced the only source for the raw materials for this product is shutting down, and as a result, they are out of business and selling off any remaining stock before closing their doors in June. We never used it in our operation, but I know a lot of people do.

cgybees, there is no mention of that news on their website.
What was the source of the news?

cgybees, I wasn't doubting your info. Found it on another forum, BeeSource.

This could be a big deal if they totally shut down. Medivet is the brand of Oxalic Acid handled by BeeMaid.
