Bleach and Nosema
I read in last months Bee Culture that a 10% concentration of bleach will kill Nosema spores left in a hive after a die off. The author suggests dipping the equipment. I wasn't clear if you dipped frames with drawn comb too. Is this possible? Would it harm to drawn comb?
Not sure about the frames......... but if you did the
chlorine evaporates really fast and I doubt it would
be an issue after a day or two.
I know a few beekeepers that add bleach to sugar
syrup feed to retard spoilage.
