Transcript of •Nosema (Nosemosis)--- Jon and Paul

•Nosema (Nosemosis)--- Jon and Paul For Science Literacy class, we are taking care of Honeybees. We are researching how to winterize them. Me and my teammate, Jon, are researching the pest known as Nosema apis, which most commonly affects Honeybees. Symptoms

The symptoms of Nosema are not very specific. This makes it easy to confuse with other diseases of the honeybee. It is seen mostly in the spring after bad weather, even though it may also be a winter disease that is only thought about in the spring when beekeepers first inspect their hives. The female worker bees are most strongly afflicted, less so the drones. The queen bee is rarely infected since sick bees rarely participate in feeding the queen. The most notice symptom is dysentery. This is seen as yellow stripes on the outside of the hive and in very bad cases, inside the hive. Bees may be unable to fly ("crawling") due to broken wings. Don't worry about newborn bees- they are always free from infection. Spores must be swallowed by a bee for it to become sick. Hope you like it! Here is the Powerpoint that Jon made! That powerpoint was by Jon! Hope you liked it! The spores are sensitive to Ultrasonic and Gamma radiation
the chemicals acetic acid and formaldehyde
And being given treatment in a heat chamber at 39 °C (120 °F) for 24 hours
A natural treatment product called Protofil, made of plant extractions, vitamins, and microelements (Best for clearing the disease from the bees without hurting them) Yellow stripes on the outside of the hive, and on severe cases, inside the hives
Bees might not be able to fly due to disjointed wings
Bees could have bad sting reflex
Bees could replace their Queen early The first bee to get the disease has to eat a spore of Nosemosis to gain the disease
Once a bee is infected with Nosemosis, a lot of other bees will be infected when that first bee shares their food. Nosemosis disease in bees Nosema spores are spread to other colony members through "fecal matter"- a solid excretory product evacuated from the intestine. The disease disrupts the digestion of pollen, doing so shortening the life of the bee. More worker bees become sick than drones or queens, most likely due to the comb cleaning activities of young bees in which drones and queens do not do. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosema_apis
