>>>The best prevention is to make sure your hive is healthy and not stressed and feed honey. Research has shown that feeding honey, especially dark honey, for winter feed decreases the incidence of Nosema. Any kind of stress and feeding sugar syrup increases the incidence.<<<
Once again, a very nice and organized post by Michael Bush; Thank you!
However, the advice on Nosema goes 180 Degrees contrary both to my experience and training.
Feeding honey in the fall, especially poor honey has been listed in many articles as a causation of nosema in stressed bees.
I had a nosema problem with several hives each year annually until I started getting serious about good clean syrup and fumigillin.
Can you expand on your sources or experiences that would compel me to try another fall feeding method?
I'm all ears; thanks!
Just say NO to excuse-izm!
If my bees die, I am responsible.
