Honey Bee Colony Health

Challenges and sustainable solutions By Diana Sammataro and J. A. Yoder (eds)

Modern commercial beekeeping has changed from primarily honey production to crop pollination. With this change has come extraordinary stress–colonies are moved multiple times a year, increasing their exposure to diseases, parasites, and hive pests. Antibiotics and acaricides are being applied more frequently, resulting in resistance and comb contamination. The future use of bee colonies as mobile pollinator populations requires modern management methods with fresh perspectives on nutrition, breeding practices, and the role of microbes in sustaining colony health.
