    J. APIC. SCI. VOL. 60 NO. 2 2016

    In this study, we identified two anti-nosemosis
    plants, Aster scaber, and Artemisia dubia, which when
    separately used had reduced the spore development
    of N. ceranae in spore-infected cells. The
    most important finding was that these plants
    were effective at non-toxic concentrations.
    Anti-nosemosis activities of both plants were
    revealed in a honey bee experiment. Specifically,
    the mixture containing both A. scaber + A. dubia
    showed stronger activity than treatment with
    only a single plant.


    Note: Aster scaber -- is a traditional food and medicine plant in Korea. Artemisia is the genus of wormwood, absinthe, Artemisinin (the modern malaria treatment) and other medicinal and folk plants.

    This is encouraging. I guess next they will have to try this in live colonies and see if they can duplicate the results in the field that they are getting in the lab.
