    I had 2 hives die off after January. They have a good 100+ lbs of honey. Diagnostics from Maryland indicated <3 mites per 100 and 6.4 million Nosema spores/bee in one; 10 million Nosema spores/bee in the other. I'll start drenching my other hives with Fumigilan-B, but any thoughts on feeding...

    Hello, I am wondering if Nosema is contagious? I have three hives. I just opened them for the first time after a cold Canadian winter to put in some pollen patties, and noticed that 2 out of 3 seem to be infected with nosema. They are weak colonies, and I don't think they will make it. The...
