Abstract

All beekeepers dread the appearance of disease in their hives, for it means at the least a large drop in the honey crop and at the worst, complete destruction of whole apiaries and the beekeepers' means of livelihood. Quite apart from the economic loss, beekeepers are usually men who work with bees because they like them, and naturally they do not want to see whole colonies destroyed.
