    Default The Honey Bee Parasite Nosema ceranae: Transmissible via Food Exchange?

    Nosema ceranae goes undetected because so few beekeepers dissect bees to test.

    Basically says that infected foragers pass nosema ceranae on to younger bees in the nectar.

    Actually it says much more than that. It recognizes that Nosema results in greater hunger, greater food exchange between workers, and most importantly it is nearly impossible to detect without dissection.

    Here is a similar study.
