How to Send Brood Samples * A comb sample should be at least 2x2 inches and contain as much of the dead or discolored brood as possible. NO HONEY SHOULD BEE PRESENT IN THE SAMPLE. * The comb can be sent in a paper bag or lossely wrapped in a paper towel, newspaper, etc. and sent in a heavy cardboard box.

    Adult honeybees will be collected from randomly sampled apiaries in Connecticut and the bees will be assayed for the presence of P. larvae spores. P. larvae is the causative agent of American foulbrood and the bacterial endospore is the contagion of this disease. P. larvae cultures collected from the various bee samples will be DNA fingerprinted using PFGE, REP-PCR and ITS-PCR . Diseases of the honey bee include: Contents[show] Pests and parasites Varroa mites Template:Main Varroa destructor and Varroa jacobsoni are parasitic mites that feed off the bodily fluids of adult, pupal and larval bees. Varroa mites can be seen with the naked eye as a small red or brown spot on the bee's thorax. Varroa are carriers for a virus that is particularly damaging .

    American foulbrood (AFB, histolysis infectiosa perniciosa larvae apium, pestis americana larvae apium), caused by the spore-forming Paenibacillus larvae (formerly classified as B. larvae, then P. larvae ssp. larvae/pulvifaciens), is the most widespread and destructive of the bee brood diseases. P. larvae is a rod-shaped bacterium. Larvae up to three days old become infected . brood cells. Various abnormalities of the brood (e.g. bald brood, poor brood pattern, patches of neglected and dead brood – discoloured brown and partly removed by the bees). Caution: make sure that these signs are not caused by foul brood infection. (See CSL/MAFF leaflet ‘Foul brood disease of honeybees: recognition and control’ PB
