Need publication that explains bee diseases
« on: March 05, 2007, 07:17:26 PM »
Does anybody have a recommendation for a book or other publication that explains the life cycles and treatment suggestions for common bee pests, including: varoa, tracheal mites, small hive beetle and wax moths.  I have a 1976 edition of The Hive and the Honeybee, and it covers brood diseases, but not this stuff. 

Thanks,

ndvan

The problem with books is they tend to fall behind as we keep getting new pests and treatment methods.

Here is a site with some good details, probably more than you'll find in the books anyway.
