Most beekeepers do not want to know more than they need to about honey bee disease. But these days the control of disease has become an unavoidable part of honeybee management. This book provides just what most beekeepers want a very short and straightforward guide to all the diseases and pests that we have to contend with.
The 26 pages of text and excellent colour pictures will help you to readily diagnose any of the usual problems affecting honeybees. Advice is given on how to control the problem, and if possible how to prevent it in the future. Varroa control and treatment is of course included. Colony abnormalities like chilled brood, dysentery and pesticide poisoning are also well covered.
