Nosema?
« on: July 19, 2012, 12:30:32 PM »
I was perusing Craigslist for bee supplies and came across this ad. Am I way off, or does the hive on the left looks like it has signs of nosema?

Good eyes.   Check with them and see when the hive had problems last.   I bet it was from last winter but just guessing here.

if yours bees have N. Apis you will see a feces in hive and around.
but if you have a N. Cerane you will not see anything.

I never heard back from the guy. I guess I'm not going to worry any more about it.
