Nosema: Test on circulating formulations

A test of the “drench” method of nosema treatment
In previous articles in this journal, I’ve summarized what we know about Nosema ceranae, its pathogenicity, detection, and treatment. I wondered whether N. ceranae would prove to be as virulent in North America as it appeared to be in Spain. There were also a number of unanswered questions as to the efficacy of treatments and the best ways to apply them. In this article I will report the results of a small field trial of “drench” treatments.
Introduction
Nosema ceranae is of great concern to the many beekeepers who have discovered that their bees are infected. It is indeed widespread, although I have sampled a number of operations in which it is virtually undetectable. Unfortunately, the standard treatment of fumagillin dissolved in heavy syrup has not always proved to be effective. In a trial that I ran last winter of several different ways of applying fumagillin, plus some alternative treatments (in prep), I was surprised to find that no treatment appeared to result in “clean” bees in the spring.

Εξυπνάδες του δασαρχείου...

Βασίλη καλημέρα θέλω να σου αναφέρω ένα πρόβλημα μου, που πιστεύω απασχολεί πολλούς συναδέλφους.
Πήγα στο δασαρχείο της περιοχής μου και τους ανέφερα ότι θέλω να μεταφέρω τα μελίσσια μου στο τοπικό πευκοδάσος, και επειδή δεν υπάρχει χώρος μες στα επιτρεπτά όρια που ορίζει ο νόμος ζήτησα να τα αφήσω σε ένα άνοιγμα του δασικού δρόμου και να φτιάξω τεχνητό φράχτη όπως ορίζει ο νόμος.

Beekeeping in New Zealand !!!

There the bee has become the country's heavy industry ...

Iordanis from Evia, Greece, a cook in the profession and a bee-lover, possession of thirty beehives.
Although he did not have a working problem, his youthful concerns led him out of Greece in an effort to get to know the different and the unknown!
So he left his job here and his beehives and he left away ...
He arrived in New Zealand where he stayed there and started looking for a job.
Then she learned about a place in a beekeeping company ...
Then he felt in his desire to contact the bee and search for more information.
