Identification and Treatment of the Most Commonly Encountered Disease of Honey Bees

Filed Under: Beekeeping, Insects

Identification and Treatment of the Most Commonly Encountered Disease of Honey Bees will provide basic information that will help small-scale and large commercial beekeeping operations recognize the most common and serious diseases that affect honey bees. Participants will learn how to recognize and treat important bacterial diseases of honey bees, recognize and treat several fungal diseases of honey bees, learn the management of the two parasitic mites (Varroa and Tracheal) that plague our honey bees, gain understanding of symptoms of viral diseases that are associated with Varroa mites, and be able to decipher the real cause of colony death when symptoms can be caused by several different diseases.
