Honey Bee Colony Health: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions

Honey Bee Colony Health: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions

1st Edition

Diana Sammataro, Jay A. Yoder
November 17, 2011

Modern commercial beekeeping has changed from primarily honey production to crop pollination. With this change has come extraordinary stress—colonies are moved multiple times a year, increasing their exposure to diseases, parasites, and hive pests. Antibiotics and acaricides are being applied more...
