Re: What causes bee paralysis?
The symptoms can be similar but you can tell the difference. Most poisoning events are over in days, CPV continues normally for months at the least. The hive in the video i posted above had it for 2 years, by some miracle did not die, then cleared up.
Some hives with CPV do die, and as there is no cure, I take a live or let die approach with them, i don't help them. I keep gear from CPV dead hives in the shed over winter then use it again, does not seem to transmit to the next lot of bees.
