Keep his bees in good health is essential to perpetuate his apiaries. Each year, epidemiological studies are more than alarming: winter losses increase to higher and higher levels, up to 50% sometimes !

To minimize the losses, it is absolutely necessary to get strong knowledge about the different illnesses and adapted treatments.

 

What are the different aspects to control ?

To keep bees in good health, it is important to :

  • Know how to identify the different bee diseases and pests (varroa, foulbroods, nosema, Aethina tumida, etc.)
  • Know the different treatments adapted to each disease, their mode of action and periods of use
  • Organize integrated pest management, in particular for varroa, and reduce resistance
