Gorging colonies of Apis mellifera L. with sugar sirup or dusting them with dry powdered sugar containing tylosin lactate or sodium sulfathiazole controlled most cases of American foulbrood disease when the treatments were repeated once a week for at least 3 weeks. Gorging was more effective than dusting in controlling the disease. Less disease appeared among larvae individually inoculated with the disease spores and then reared in colonies treated with Tylosin than in colonies treated with sulfathiazole. Tylosin tartrate also effectively controlled American foulbrood disease.
