Apistym is recommended to administer in the beehive to enhance bees’ immunity. This supplementary feed reduces the spread of infection with Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae. Application of this supplementary feed during infections, especially with Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae, reduces pathogen contamination.
Apistym contains ginseng infusion which helps to increase phenol oxidase level (enzyme taking part in immune response), enhancing colony’s immunity and vitality. This helps bees to fight pathogens more effectively. Apistym administered in autumn feeding increases colony’s survivability in winter and in spring – accelerates its development.
Posology and methods of administration
Shake before use!
Preparing Apistym with sugar syrup solution.
Autumn feeding – 4 ml of Apistym per 1 litre of sugar syrup.
Sprinkling beeways, stimulative feeding – 20 ml of Apistym per 1 litre of sugar syrup.
Syrup temperature should not exceed 50°C.
Apistym should be administered with sugar syrup solution or prepared bee feed in a dose of 4 ml of the product per 1 litre of syrup.
Sugar syrup or feed prepared with Apistym should be administered in colonies during autumn feeding.
Adjust feed amount to the colony’s strength. Recommended Apistym’s dosage per one colony: 40 ml (10 litres of syrup). In case of administering a smaller dosage a supplementary, double sprinkling (at an interval of 7-10 days) of beeways is recommended (solution of Apistym in sugar syrup – 20 ml of the product per 1 litre, 5-10 ml per beeway).
Spring and summer usage
Sprinkle beeways with a solution of Apistym in sugar syrup (20 ml of the product per 1 litre) twice – 5-10 ml per beeway (at an interval of 7-10 days). A solution of Apistym for sprinkling beeways might be administered during stimulative feeding – 0.5-1 litre per colony. Use this dosage during every stimulative feeding.
Apistym might also be administered in a sugar cake – 4 ml of the product per 1 kg of cake per colony.
Once opened use immediately. If the whole product was not used, the opened bottle can be stored in the fridge no longer than 14 days.
Apistym was developed in co-operation with research institutes of University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Maria Curie Sklodowska University in Lublin and Jagiellonian University in Cracow. The product composition is patented and its properties were confirmed by laboratory testing and apiary use.
