Anyone have an info for breeding for nosema tolerant bees? Only place I have seen that is working in this direction is Olympic Wilderness Apiaries. But they don’t say exactly what they are doing???

I am pretty sure "nosema tolerant bees" are about the same as "winter-hardy bees".
They overlap by a lot.
Especially so because vast (most?) number of diarrhea cases are actually about being able to hold the poop for a long time or about not filling the guts with the poop during the bad timing.
Not really about nosema.
