    Default Australian Mud Virus

    Just heard about this. Don't know anything about it. Does anyone know anything about Australian Mud Virus in the brood of honeybees?

    Maybe this :https://rirdc.infoservices.com.au/items/04-152
    It was originally thought to be a form of KBV but now seems to be a nutrition problem.

    Only if someone is pulling my leg. I took the guy that I heard about it from seriously.

    Great, we'll probably import that to America too.

    Sounds like neonicatinoind's being described as something else! Those of us that see it keep getting nocked down for our beliefs!

    What source do you suspect neo-nic poisoning from?

    I think the 'muck' has been around Oz for a long time before these systemic insecticides.

    We have plants in California that are toxic to bees also.

    Some neonics have been around for quite a while now.

    If it's importable we probably already have.

    That's why I asked about it.

    Supposedly it looks like AFB, but it isn't and TM works on it.
