    Default Nosema - Acetic Acid?

    I have 2 dead outs that seem to have been a victim of Nosema. I live in NC. I can not find any 60-80% acetic acid. Anyone have any contacts or ideas? Thanks

    here was a thread on bee-l starting 4th week of april dealing with using bleach to do the same thing, aparently there was also an article written in one of the bee magazines. I would put a link to the info but the links don't appear to work as it includes my username in it. I never did figure out if they were talking household bleach and or what strength. but intended to check it out when i get time. good luck

    if you go to the following link:
    http://www.scientificbeekeeping.com/...ask=view&id=56

    go to section comb disinfection and look under update it does say that bleach is effective but I still cant find out what kind of bleach.
