Hi folks,

I'm looking for information on some viruses for a 4H exhibit. I know it's a little unusual, but trust me, it'll be great. :D Any links or titles of books I could find in the library would be great. I've exhausted Wikipedia and waded through several singularly uninformative scientific journal articles :)scratch:), so I decided to look for some help elsewhere!

Here are the viruses:
Deformed Wing Virus
Acute Bee Paralysis Virus
Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus
Kashmir Bee Virus
Black Queen Cell Virus
Chronic Bee Paralysis Virus
Kakugo Virus
Varroa Destructor Virus 1

Here's the information I'm looking for:
Year and location of discovery
Primary symptoms
Range (regions it's been observed in)

Any information you have, I would love to see. Thanks in advance for your help!

DWV first issolated in Japan. Found that in "Honey Bee Pests, Predators and Diseases" Edited by Morse and Flottum.

How far are you from Wooster, OH. maybe you should go see a Doctor. :) Dr. Jim Tew of OSU/ATI, Wooster, OH.

Sounds like quite an exhibit. Good luck.

Thanks for the reference, Myron. I'll check it out! :thumbsup:

sqrck, what's Dr. Tew's specialty? Wooster is a bit too far for me, but if he has info about this topic, I could contact him through this nifty Internet thing. :p

His specialty is beekeeping. Graduated from MD University many years ago. is originally from Dothan, AL. taught beekeeping courses at OSU/ATI for many years. He taught Jerry Hayes of "The School Room" fame for you ABJ readers. If you get Bee Culture, he is in there about every month. He was my professor when I got my AAS Degree in Commercial Beekeeping back in 1985-86. An entertaining and greatly loved speaker at numerous bee club and association meetings for 30 plus years.

Thanks, WLC. I have to be careful with the number of exciting journal articles I read about honeybees, or else I'll end up majoring in entomology! :eek:
