Vaccines for honey bees?
« on: April 10, 2013, 01:08:10 AM »
Scientist Noah Wilson-Rich is creating vaccines for honey bees against CCD and Nosema.

"This summer, [Best Bees Company LLC] will field-test an antifungal vaccine, made from yeast sugar, along with a probiotic supplement for bees. They hope the vaccine will act against the fungal spore Nosema, a growing threat to hives in the United States and one of the parasites linked to CCD."
