Administer in 3 applications of sugar syrup or 3 dustings at 4 to 5 day intervals. Apply dust on the outer parts or ends of the frames. See Residue Warnings.

CONTRAINDICATION: Dusting of uncapped brood cells has been reported to cause death of larval honey bees. Do not dust uncapped brood cells.
FISH DOSAGE
For the marking of skeletal tissues in finfish fry and fingerlings as an aid in identification. Immerse fry or fingerling finfish in 200 to 700 mg OTC (buffered)/liter of water for 2-6 hours. Solution should be tested on a small number of fish before full-scale use. Once mixed with water, solution should be used immediately. See Residue Warnings.

ADVERSE REACTIONS: Oxytetracycline hydrochloride will acidify the water. The pH should be maintained at an acceptable level for fish by the addition of a buffer. Monitor water quality and temperature.

DISPOSAL OF TREATED WATER: Do not discharge marking immersion water containing oxytetracycline into surface waters.

PRECAUTION: Prepare fresh solutions every 24 hours.

Special Note: The concentration of drug required in medicated water must be adequate to compensate for variation in the age of the animal, feed consumption rate and the environmental temperature and humidity, each of which affects water consumption.

RESIDUE WARNINGS: Use as sole source of oxytetracycline. Do not administer to turkeys, cattle or sheep within 5 days of slaughter. Zero-day slaughter withdrawal in swine. Do not administer to chickens or turkeys producing eggs for human consumption. Do not administer this product with milk or milk replacers.

Do not use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older. An additional withdrawal time beyond the grow-out period is not needed for fish. For honey bees, the drug should be fed early in the spring or fall and consumed by the bees before main honey flow begins to avoid contamination of production honey. Remove at least 6 weeks prior to main honey flow.
