For the May edition of The Australasian Beekeeper we have a large ABK News section, with workshops on stingless bees, a new AHBIC CEO, pesticide damage and how wax moths can solve the problems of plastic waste.
In the Apiary covers an article on small hive beetle and whether it can be eliminated. We also have an article on how a mushroom extract might rescue bees from a deadly virus and Mary Montaut looks at the when, why and what of washboarding bees. Looking into harvesting, we have an in-depth article which looks at the why we squeeze out every drop and there is also a very enlightening research article from Poland, where they instrumentally inseminate Queen bees in commercial colonies.
Clarence Collison looks into the deformed wing virus in bees and Randy Oliver delivers on the next installment of the Nosmea Problem – The cause of dysentery in Honeybees and in recent research we all look at the dance of the honeybee and how it reveals its fondness for strawberries.
Don’t miss our regular catch up on the news in the bee world where we cover the life of two prominent beekeepers who are no longer with us, as well as items for sale in the classifieds section, and you connection with other beekeepers via our associations page, this month we feature Part 1.
