Vaccines for honey bees?
Scientist Noah Wilson-Rich is creating vaccines for honey bees against CCD and Nosema.
"This summer, [Best Bees Company LLC] will field-test an antifungal vaccine, made from yeast sugar, along with a probiotic supplement for bees. They hope the vaccine will act against the fungal spore Nosema, a growing threat to hives in the United States and one of the parasites linked to CCD."
I noticed that vaccines for bees is not a new idea on BeeSource. There are threads from 2008 and 2009 that discuss Beeologics and Remebee (from the Israelies). For interested folk, links to those threads are:
