    So tonight I got to hear Marla Spivak speak and she talked about some experiments they did with either painting propolis on the inside of hives or lining the hive boxes with propolis traps to coax bees into lining the hive boxes with the resin. Has anyone tried other methods of roughing up the...

    A Strong Immune Response in Young Adult Honeybees Masks Their Increased Susceptibility to Infection Compared to Older Bees Forager bees treated with the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae s.l. survived for significantly longer than house bees. More immune genes were up regulated in...
