Efficacy of venom immunotherapy in beekeepers. (2/23)

INTRODUCTION: We previously found that some beekeepers continue beekeeping even after experiencing systemic allergic reactions. The present study was performed to collect data on the experience of beekeepers who underwent desensitization and continued beekeeping. The results are important for future counseling in this group of patients, and they show the effectiveness of desensitization under real conditions. METHODS: With the help of German and American beekeeping journals, we asked beekeepers who had undergone desensitization to participate. Data were obtained using a newly developed questionnaire and supplemented by reports obtained from the physicians who treated the allergy. RESULTS: We sent a questionnaire to each of the 73 beekeepers who responded to our call, and 63 (86.3%) questionnaires were returned. The vast majority of participants were hobby beekeepers who developed signs of allergy after a median of 2 years' beekeeping (mean, 4.27 years) and a median of 15 stings (mean, 51 stings). Additional allergies were reported by 35 beekeepers. Forty-three beekeepers were evaluated to determine the effectiveness of desensitization. The average number of bee stings after desensitization was 107 (median 18). All but one reported no longer having allergic responses; however, in the case of those that did, the severity of the allergic symptoms improved significantly. CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this study is the first to provide data on the experience of beekeepers who continue their activity after desensitization. Our results show that desensitization can result in a complete absence of symptoms after re-exposure to bee stings.  (+info)

Also known as the Vampire Mite, Varroa Mite, Varroa Destructor and often mislabeled as Varroa Jacobsoni.. The Varroa Mite is a parasitic mite that can cause serious trouble to beekeepers and their bees alike. This tick-like mite, around the sized of a pinhead, does its damage by feeding on the bees hemolymph fluid (akin to bee blood). Mites attach themselves to foraging workers in order to spread themselves from one hive to another. This mite can severally weaken a hive through vampire-like action and through the spread of disease and bacteria. An unchecked mite population will almost certainly lead to the premature death of a honeybee colony.. Within the United States, Varroa Mites have the largest impact when compared to other pests within the beekeeping industry. The Varroa Mite is also nearly completely responsible for the decimation and loss of feral honeybee colonies. Some beekeepers have resorted to reverting to small cell beekeeping and many hobbyist are moving towards top bar hives in ...
Interestingly, our industries are strikingly similar in many ways. In New Zealand they do not have issues with Chinese honey imports, but they do battle honey imports from elsewhere on the globe. They have problems with companies claiming to sell one type of honey when the product is something else entirely. Sounds familiar right? There seems especially to be a problem with companies all over the world claiming to sell Manuka honey with a high Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) level, yet it contains very little Manuka honey or very low levels of UMF. Like us, they struggle on a regular basis with Varroa mites, Nosema Ceranae, politics in beekeeping and a plethora of other issues. However, like the American beekeeping industry, they are resilient, passionate and excited about their careers despite the challenges they face. At times, the challenges are brutal and seem insurmountable. But, for every issue that arises, a solution has always been discovered, and a handful of scientists and beekeepers always ...

Beekeeping, or apiculture, is the cultivation of colonies of honeybees. Commercial beekeeping includes the production of honey and beeswax, the breeding of bees for sale, and the rental of bees for pollenating crops. Beekeeping in most of the world means cultivating the western honeybee, Apis mellifera. The infamous killer bee, a relative of the African honeybee, is too aggressive for commercial beekeeping. Modern beekeeping is based on the ancient Greek technique of creating a bee space. In those days, the hive consisted of a basket of containing a series of parallel wooden bars separated by a distance equal to that between the honeycombs when they are naturally built by bees. The distance is 6.350 millimeters, or about one quarter of an inch. Any variation from this distance results in the space being filled with comb or propolis. A honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal cells in the nest that contain eggs, young bees, and honey. Lorenzo Lorraine Langstroth in 1851 brought beekeeping to the United ...
By Ian Lane. With the growth of the urban farming movement and the increase in media coverage of pollinator decline, it is not surprising that urban beekeeping is on the rise across the United States. Cities such as New York, Minneapolis, and San Francisco are easing restrictions on beekeeping and there are similar movements underway in Los Angeles and other cities.. As urban centers continue to grow, along with their associated suburbs, natural areas that provide the flowering resources bees require for good nutrition and honey production are being eliminated from the landscape. Green areas, residential gardens, and weedy lots within urban landscapes provide flowering resources for managed and native bees, but the quality and quantity of these habitats can be marginal. Residential and park gardens may be planted with ornamental flower varieties that have little value as nectar and pollen resources. Most notably, the main feature of urban landscapes is the vast lawn monoculture, comprised of ...

In todays world, is beekeeping an ideal libertarian occupation? I am a beekeeper. I have beehives located on other peoples farms, on a handshake agreement with the landowner. Bees will fly 2 miles in every direction, gathering nectar from lands owned by other people. Beekeeping (apiculture) is the oldest form of agriculture in the world. Some of the oldest known laws deal with beekeeping. Historically, beekeepers owned the hives, and the contents of the hives. Free-flying individual bees were "Gods bees", which prevented beekeepers from trespassing onto any of the 5000 acres in that 2 mile radius of the hive, if the beekeeper were pursuing their "escaped livestock". (Laws in some countries do permit a beekeeper to pursue a swarm of bees as long as the beekeeper has maintained eyesight of the swarm at all times since it left the hive.) As a beekeeper, you are an entrepreneur. The old-time bee books suggest that a beekeeper should consistently be able to get a 35% return on investment (ROI) ...

This section of the beekeeping wikibook exists as a place to quickly answer some frequently (and perhaps some non frequently) asked questions. Answers will generally be brief and possibly point in the direction of a pre-existing module on the subject. Any items that go into particular depth and dont have a related module may eventually become a new module. Because of the ease and simplicity involved in answering (most) quick questions, there may, and likely will, exist information within this module that is not present in other modules.. Please keep in mind that most questions have a wide range of possibly correct answers. An old saying goes "if you ask 100 beekeepers the same question you will get 101 different answers." Though some beepers may disagree with that statement, which does not change the fact that there will be different opinions as to the correct answer to a question. Because of this, hopefully more than one answer may be supplied for each question. If you choose to answer any ...

The small hive beetle (Aethina tumida, SHB) is an invasive pest of honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies in the United States. The adult and larval beetles can ruin honey through fecal contamination and by vectoring a mutualistic yeast (Kodamaea ohmeri) that causes honey fermentation. These beetles also impact honey bee colonies by feeding on bee eggs, bee brood, and pollen. Severe beetle infestations can cause colonies to decline or abscond. The SHB has been present in the United States since at least 1998. Since then, there have been several published papers on how to successfully rear these beetles. Laboratory rearing of SHBs allows for immediate access to adults and immature stages without having to constantly collect them from infested bee colonies. A clean and cost effective method for rearing SHBs is presented in this thesis. There is little published information on the external morphology of the SHB. Murray, Schmolke, Menier, and Jouan were some of the few authors to publish on this subject.
November 12, 2017 , Israel and India inaugurated a beekeeping development center over the weekend in the city of Ramnagar in the province of Harnaya in northern India.

Carcinogenic effects of bee venom were evaluated in a mortality study of 580 occupationally exposed beekeepers. The subjects were identified through obituary notices published between 1949 and 1978 in three journals of the U.S. beekeeping industry. Death certificates of beekeepers were examined for causes of mortality, and proportionate mortality ratios were compared with those for the general U.S. population. Beekeepers had a slightly lower than expected fraction of deaths from cancer. The deficit of lung cancers in male beekeepers was significant (p less than 0.05) and may indicate that fewer beekeepers were cigarette smokers. The frequencies of other cancers did not differ significantly from expectation. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma developed in four persons, and was expected in two. Mortality from diseases other than cancer showed no unusual patterns. At least two persons died from accidents directly related to the care of beehives. Analysis of a subgroup of 377 males with major roles in the ...

During 1947 the 55,000 colonies of honey bees in Utah produced approximately $545,000 worth of marketable honey and beeswax. In addition they pollinated most of the fruit, alfalfa seed, various vegetable and other seed crops. By 1949 the price of honey had declined to where the crop of honey and beeswax was worth $253,000, produced by 49,000 colonies of bees. The value of bees in Utah as pollinating agents to fruit and seed crops greatly exceeds the income received by beekeepers from bee products sold. Because agriculture receives such great benefit from bees, it seems reasonable that farmers who are deriving substantial benefit from the beekeeping industry should cooperate with beekeepers to sustain beekeeping on a sound, thriving basis.
There has been much ado about that new hive on the market making honey harvesting "easier." What was astonishing was how those entrepreneurs by-passed a small business loan process, and got prospective customers to purchase a product before it even went into production. The astounding fact is these entrepreneurs raised $12M from beekeepers, and beekeeper "wanna-bees who probably shouldnt be." Sure gadgets attract attention. Honey flowing from the frame directly into a jar makes for good video. In the end good beekeeping takes work, attention to detail, and interaction with your bees. But, $12 million dollars!? Researchers and the nonprofits that support honey bee and native pollinator researchers are dumb-founded. Think what $12 million dollars could do for bee research? Think how $12 million dollars could make real change for all honey bees?. National and State beekeeping groups have separate funds to support local and national research, and none of them come close to raising or having $12M. ...

A. You can probably find some mites in each and every colony of bees in North America. The little critters are pretty small and anyone who thinks his or her hives are mite-free is unfortunately still uneducated. For a number of years, government inspectors would remove a few bees from a few hives and declare that such-and-such an apiary (or county or state) was mite-free while perhaps another had mites. The hives with the mites were stacked into a big pile and burned. If the inspectors had studied their Grade 7 mathematics, they would have known a bit about statistics and probability. They would have known that half the colonies which were found mite-free were actually infested and the poor folks who had their bees and businesses destroyed had basically bought the wrong lottery ticket. In the end, thousands of hives were destroyed all over North America, the mite spread anyway (in at least one case, inspectors doing experiments accidentally moved new mites into one country!) and voila! ...
Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: The mite Varroa jacobsoni is a serious pest of honey bees and a threat to the vitality of the U.S. beekeeping industry. We have examined a nutritional aspect of the host-parasite interaction in an effort to uncover biochemical differences between the mite and the bee. Our results indicate that the use of sterol inhibitors in a mite control program are unlikely to be effective. This information will be used by those involved in finding a control for parasitic bee mites and will benefit the U.S. beekeeping industry. Technical Abstract: The neutral sterols of the parasitic mite Varroa jacobsoni were compared with Apis mellifera carnica drone pupae. Analysis by GLC-mass spectrometry indicated mite sterols were reflective of the sterol composition of the drones; 24-methylenecholesterol was the major sterol in both species, with lesser amounts of sitosterol and isofucosterol. Cholesterol accounted for less than 1% of the total sterols. Ecdysteroid analyses indicated ...

Stephen Taber III. (17 April 1924 - 22 May 2008) was an American apiologist, noted authority and author in the field of artificial insemination of queen bees for the purpose of developing disease resistant and gentle bee colonies. Mr. Stephen Taber III, was a world-recognized honey bee researcher. He was born on April 17, 1924, to Dr. Stephen Taber II and Bessie Ray Taber of Columbia, S.C. His father was the South Carolina State Geologist from 1912 to 1947 and the head of the Department of Geology at the University of South Carolina, where he was involved in the engineering of the Santee Cooper Dam among many other projects. Steve became interested in bees at an early age, using the banks of the Broad River in Columbia as his research yard. Steves first commercial beekeeping experience was in 1941 in upstate New York where he worked one summer making $30 a month. He continued working in NY and later Wisconsin where he claimed to have learned much of the basics of beekeeping. He graduated from ...
I would definitely research Warré hives, but the horizontal top bar hives are good as well. The barrel version is similar to a Kenyan Top Bar hive, which just means it has sloping sides. You can convert your current hives into top bars but it will be a lot of work. Best to try out a few top bar hives on their own, see if they work for you for a couple of years, then you can convert those old ones or just phase them out. I like the top bar design because it is less stressful to bees, and since I have Africanized bees, less stress means they dont want to kill me, which is a good thing. Removing one bar at a time exposes the bees a lot less than an entire super. So, it doesnt make them go into defensive mode. Anyway, do some googling on top bar hives. Especially these sites: ...
Remove the tack on the end of the Queen cage, slide a finger over the end - dont let the Queen escape! - and insert the Queen candy halfway in to the hole. Bend this piece of metal to hook it over the top of a frame. TIP: It is essential that the Queen cage stay attached to the frame. If the cage falls the colony will likely reject and kill the Queen. We suggest using a flat thumbtack on the frame to ensure the cage is securely attached. The screen of the queen cage should face down into the hive. The bees will eat away at the sugar candy for 2-3 days to release the queen, at which point the colony should accept the queen as their own.. Place the inner cover on your hive, then the outer cover-and leave the bees alone for 8 days.. ...
Bees are the most important pollinating insect because they visit flowers to collect food for their larvae, as well as feeding on floral resources as adults. In Ireland crops such as apples, clover, strawberries and oilseed rape all benefit from pollination and a recent study from the Department of the Environment valued this ecosystem service that bees provide at €85m a year to the economy.. 2013: Worldwide study shows the decline of wild bees and other pollinators may be an even more alarming threat to crop yields than the loss of honeybees, revealing the irreplaceable contribution of wild insects to global food production.. In Ireland there are 101 species of bee, including the familiar honeybee (One species) and 20 bumblebee species. The remaining species are solitary, meaning they do not form colonies.. Amongst the most well-known services performed by a healthy biodiversity is pollination. Bees are the keystone pollinator species making more flower visits than any other insect. There ...
Pre-exercise: For years, sports nutritionists have recommended eating carbohydrates before an athletic activity for an added energy boost. As with many carbohydrates, pure honey may be an effective form to ingest just prior to exercise. When honey is eaten before a workout or athletic activity, it is released into the system at a steady rate throughout the event.. During Exercise: Consuming carbohydrates, such as honey, during a workout helps your muscles stay nourished longer and delays fatigue, versus not using any aid or supplement. Next time you reach for a simple bottle of water, add some honey to it - it might give you that much-needed athletic boost!. Post-exercise: An optimal recovery plan is essential for any athlete. Research shows that ingesting a combination of carbohydrates and protein immediately following exercise (within 30 minutes) is ideal to refuel and decrease delayed-onset muscle soreness. Therefore, honey is a great source of carbohydrate to combine with post-workout ...
Any control should always include verification of the proper functioning of the processing techniques and of the finished products, i.e. the consistency of characteristics important for the presentation such as colour, appearance, physical consistency, taste and aroma. Of course, each honey containing product has its own set of production and legal quality standards which need to be observed. A sample of each processing batch should be retained under normal distribution and storage conditions, in order to monitor product shelf-life.. It is advisable that all processed products containing honey for which formulations and processes have been newly adjusted, are run through a small test (pilot production) to verify the acceptability of the product and the preservation characteristics and to reduce cost of unforeseen problems. Also in this case, the preservation of a sample of the product is good practice. Particularly during such trials and test runs, it is important to keep precise notes of all ...

The Asian market is potentially very large and with proper marketing should have tremendous value. In Asia, consumer preferences and traditions differ from those prevailing in Europe and North America and have facilitated marketing and increased production. Local cosmetic industries in particular, have very great potential for growth once quality and marketing (most of all packaging) approach the levels of Western competitors. The use of royal jelly in cosmetics has led to some very successful products. In one case (in Thailand) a business originally based on cosmetics with royal jelly and other bee products was so successful that it grew into a multimillion dollar enterprise.. While these successful companies became large operations, there is still plenty of room for small, local businesses (beauty parlours, vendors, pharmacies and others) to formulate articles containing bee products and in particular, royal jelly. These need to be adapted and selected according to local consumer preferences ...

Acidic foods such as fruits, jam, tomatoes, and pickles contain enough acid to block the growth of botulinum bacteria and can therefore be processed in a water bath canner. This piece of kitchen equipment is simply a large stock pot with a rack inside for lifting the jars in and out. If you dont have a canner, you can improvise with a stock pot. Make sure the jars will fit and the pot can be filled with enough water to cover the top of the lids. Use a towel on the bottom of the pot to keep the jars from rattling against the bottom of the pot and breaking. Recipes and instructions should always be followed to the letter. A current edition of the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving or a current edition of the USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning and Preserving are highly recommended ...
The most frequent alleles found in European populations (Estoup et al. 1995, Franck et al. 1998) are also the most frequent among Brazilian DCAs. This can be interpreted as either a significant European contribution to Africanized populations, or that these alleles are not efficient racial markers, since they are shared by the subspecies involved in the Africanization process. The latter interpretation seems to be more feasible, as allozymic (Lobo et al., 1989; Del Lama et al., 1990), mtDNA (Smith et al., 1989; Clarke et al., 2001; Collet et al., 2006) and morphometric data (Diniz-Filho and Malaspina, 1995) all indicate a very high proportion of A. m. scutellata genes in Africanized honeybees.. No significant differences were found between samples of the DCA CM2 collected during two different periods. This finding is in accordance with previous observations that honeybees from European-derived or Africanized colonies do not present flight-activity at different periods in Neotropical regions ...
Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. As the mysterious plunge in bee populations continues, researchers are scrambling to understand the cause for the widespread decimation.. One explanation could be "idiopathic brood disease syndrome," or IBDS, a newly described condition that appears to increase a colony´s risk of collapse, according to a new study in the journal Preventative Veterinary Medicine.. Study co-author David Tarpy, an associate professor of entomology at North Carolina State University, said IBDS was difficult to identify at first.. "Historically, we´ve seen symptoms similar to IBDS associated with viruses spread by large-scale infestations of parasitic mites," he said. "But now we´re seeing these symptoms - a high percentage of larvae deaths - in colonies that have relatively few of these mites. That suggests that IBDS is present even in colonies with low mite loads, which is not what we expected.". In the study, the researchers from NC State, the University of ...
With all due respect Alex, I would like to pose a different take on this subject. I have been keeping bees for 34 years, for probably 20 of those years I have been President of Eastern CT Beekeepers Assn. I teach two beekeeping classes each winter. By Connecticuts standards, I am a commercial beekeeper, running in the neighborhood of 300 hives. I also Import to CT from Georgia,1200 or so packages of bees to resell to hobbyist beekeepers. In addition, also produce up to 200 nucs for resale. All of these bees go to other beekeepers, almost without exception,these people have fewer than 10 hives. While some are beginners, most (80% or so) are replacing dead outs from the previous winter. While taking these orders for bees, I continuously hear " why did my bees die last winter?" I ask them just two questions. 1) What did you do about nutrition? and 2) What did you do to control Varroa mites? The answer is usually a long silence.. During the last 8 years or so there has been a tremendous upsurge in ...
This is the official group for the mid york beekeepers club of central New York.for the discusion of club news and other beekeeping info.
In 2006, American and European beekeepers started noticing a strange and worrying trend - their bees were disappearing. Their hives, usually abuzz with activity, were emptying. There were no traces of the workers or their corpses either in or around the ghost hives, which still contained larvae and plentiful stores of food. It seemed that entire colonies of bees had apparently chosen not to be. The cause of the aptly named Colony Collapse Disorder, or CCD, has been hotly debated over the last year. Fingers were pointed at a myriad of suspects including vampiric mites, pesticides, electromagnetic radiation, GM crops, climate change and poor beekeeping practices. And as usual, some people denied that there was a problem at all. But a large team of US scientists led by Diana Cox-Foster and Ian Lipkin have used modern genomics to reveal a new villain in this entomological whodunnit - a virus called Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus or IAPV. By and large, the team found that where there was IAPV, there ...
Der Spiegel (edited). www.spiegel.de/international. A mysterious decimation of bee populations has German beekeepers worried, while a similar phenomenon in the United States is gradually assuming catastrophic proportions. The consequences for agriculture and the economy could be enormous.. Is the mysterious decimation of bee populations in the US and Germany a result of GM crops? Walter Haefeker is a man who is used to painting grim scenarios. He sits on the board of directors of the German Beekeepers Association (DBIB) and is vice president of the European Professional Beekeepers Association. And because griping is part of a lobbyists trade, it is practically his professional duty to warn that the very existence of beekeeping is at stake.. The problem, says Haefeker, has a number of causes, one being the varroa mite, introduced from Asia, and another is the widespread practice in agriculture of spraying wildflowers with herbicides and practicing monoculture. Another possible cause, according ...
Beyond Pesticides, June 23, 2016) A truck full of dead bees made its final stop yesterday at a rally outside the headquarters of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), culminating a coast-to-coast tour to raise awareness about recent massive declines in pollinators. While the millions of dead bees stayed on the truck, advocates and beekeepers, including Beyond Pesticides, delivered over 4 million signatures urging an immediate ban on bee-killing pesticides. "In the five years since I started keeping bees, Ive seen many hives killed by pesticides," said James Cook, a Minnesota-based beekeeper who has been driving the truck across the country since last Monday. "If some fundamental things dont change, its going to be really hard for beekeepers to adapt to the environment around us." Bees pollinate most of the worlds most common crops, including summer favorites like peaches and watermelon. But over 40 percent of U.S. honeybee hives die each year, costing the farming and beekeeping ...
The Court has agreed to hear the case on April 14, 2015. The case, Pollinator Stewardship Council v. EPA, which requests changes to EPAs product label for sulfoxaflor, was first filed July 2013. The petitioners include the Pollinator Stewardship Council, the American Honey Producers Association, the National Honey Bee Advisory Board, the American Beekeeping Federation, and beekeepers Bret Adee, Jeff Anderson and Thomas Smith. The beekeeper groups are represented by Earthjustice.. The case is one of a number of pending legal cases on EPAs pesticide decisions under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), including one submitted March 2013 by Beyond Pesticides, the Center for Food Safety, beekeepers, and other environmental and consumer groups challenging the agencys failure to protect pollinators from dangerous pesticides. That lawsuit challenges EPAs oversight of the neonicotinoid insecticides-clothianidin and thiamethoxam- which have repeatedly been identified as ...

Jeff Harris, bee specialist with the MSU Extension Service and Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station researcher, said herbicides destroy bee food sources.. When farmers burn down weeds before spring planting, or people spray for goldenrod, asters and spring flowers, or when power companies spray their rights-of-way, they re killing a lot of potential food sources for bees and wild pollinators, he said.. Harris said the direct effect of these chemicals on bees is so much less of an issue than their loss of food supply.. Disappearing food is on the mind of beekeepers in the state, he said. That is even more important to them than losses of bees to insecticides. Johnny Thompson, vice president of the Mississippi Beekeeping Association, is a cattle and poultry farmer in Neshoba County who has been in the bee business for the last 10 years.. Before we got back into bees, I sprayed pastures by the barrel to kill weeds. As a cattle farmer, weeds are a nuisance, Thompson said. I m ...
Women beekeepers in the region of Maharastra, located in central-west India, are also asking these tiny insects for help in the fight against hunger.. Neema Ramesh Bilkule, a 28-year-old beekeeper, has to walk two kilometres from her house to her hives, which are located under a wooden hut in the small village of Kevdipada, a seven-hour drive from Mumbai. She waves at her neighbours working in the rice fields in the rain.. Neema lives in a house that she and her family built using mud and cow dung - a typical practice in this area. She has been a farmer her entire life and has been keeping bees for two years.. Neema is taking part in our training programme with over 500 farmer women from very poor or tribal areas, explains Rhea Cordeiro from Under the Mango Tree, an Indian NGO which encourages beekeeping as an important way to ensure food supplies for this rural population. Thanks to the hives located near their crops, Neemas community has seen increased productivity of 30 to 60 per cent in ...
Candidates for the Journeyman rank and higher must document a certain number of public service efforts having been carried out since their last certification.. Public service is defined as volunteer service or educational effort promoting honey bees and beekeeping for the benefit of the public.. It is meant to be an "outward-focused enterprise with the intention of serving the non-beekeeping public, as opposed to an endeavor focused within the industry, i.e., toward our own (other beekeepers). Such public service places a premium on the personal involvement of the candidate. Educational activities in conjunction with commercial ventures generally do not qualify. Newspaper articles about the candidate do not qualify; however, original publications by the candidate may qualify (not be applied reduntantly toward Master Beekeeper subspecialty #6) as long as the nature of the media and the information itself is applicable to the non-beekeeping public.. ...

This is an order of the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) that September 5, 2011 set fire to the powder. A beekeeper German who found the presence of pollen from GM maize Mon 810 sued and the court found her honey unmarketable. In fact the coexistence of GM crops in open fields and beekeeping is incompatible. A few days later the same court overturned the safeguard clause for the corn taken by France in 2008. Which sows confusion among beekeepers that the number of hives and bees decreases dramatically after the problems of the Regent, the Gaucho and across the great southern Asian hornet. Starting from a standing meeting Léojac they signed yesterday a coup by penetrating so cunning in the administrative buildings of the Monsanto-Monbéqui installed near the Garonne. An advance guard of about twenty of them acted as the Trojan horse posing as deliverymen and then opening the gates to the main body. The surprise was total. When the police arrived the occupants were on the premises ...
A young beekeeper and his wife called me about several swarms he had hived. He ran out of complete boxes and asked what to do with one that was boxed but had no bottom board. Well since I am in the early stages of rebuilding my apiary, I said that I probably could take it off his hands. With them being new beekeepers, the swarm looked larrrrge so I loaded a 10 frame box with drawn comb along with top and bottom boards. I also put a nuc in the truck just in case the swarm was not as big as he thought.. When I arrived at their apiary, there were the beekeepers, his mother, and their son and daughter-in-law ready to watch and learn. The first thing I asked about was the sheet draped over the hive of one of the swarms. The answer was that they didnt want the bees to leave. I explained that the bees were looking for a home and when they were put into the box, they found a home and unlike humans, didnt need to rest. They needed to get to work and with the sheet blocking their way, they couldnt ...
Wolfgang Ritter (born October 28, 1948) is a German biologist and melittology specialist in beekeeping and an veterinary pathology expert on the varroa destructor parasites on bees. Ritter completed his studies of chemistry and biology at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität and did a doctorate at the Institute for Bees Research in Oberursel near Frankfurt am Main. Since 1980, he has been leading the Bee Research Department at the Institute for Veterinary Hygiene at Freiburg im Breisgau (today part of the CVUA Freiburg). In 1987 Ritter was elected as President of the Scientific Commission of the International Federation of Beekeepers Associations "Apimondia" - he left this position in 2015. Moreover, since 1991, he has been working as expert and leader of the reference laboratory for bee health of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). Until 2007, Ritter was a visiting lecturer in the field of bee research at the Faculty for Agricultural Science of the University of Kassel. In ...

Beekeeping offers a great development potential, as a source of food, as a nutritional complement and also as raw material provider to several activities. Moreover, biodiversity improvement conservation, incentive for retention of natural habitats and an ideal activity for forest conservation programmes are important factors associated with this activity. Honey is a natural sweet product that is produced in almost all Portuguese Regions. Honeys from certain areas are preferred mainly because of their sensory characteristics, which are related to their floral origin. The pollen and nectar variability influences the honey flavour and determines its commercial quality. The aims of this work are: geographical identification of existing apiaries in the central region of Portugal; identification and quantification of floral sources; characterization of honey (sensory and physico-chemical); construction of thematic maps supporting the new hives installation, predicting the honey characteristics.

We learn as long as we live, right? Have you heard of sleeping about the beehives as an alternative therapy? I was surprised to hear about this and I though it must be something new! But no, as everything else related to honey and bees, this therapy is probably as old as beekeeping. It has different names: bee therapy, sleeping above the beehives, sleeping with bees, sleeping on hives-stove benches, or simply bee beds, ulleotherapy or uleterapia in Russia.

Image above: Beekeeping on Kauai. From (http://kauaibuzz.blogspot.com/2010/12/kauai-beekeepers-association-meeting.html). Summer solstice, the social high point of our year is past and I am in reflective mode over the Christmas period (traditionally a quiet one at Melliodora.) Su has decided to open the largest of her 4 bee hives and finds it brim full. Definitely time to extract! She works the bees (by far the most numerous of her "girls" that include goats, chooks and geese). My job is uncapping the frames and spinning them in the extractor. Uncapping 16 frames full of tagasaste and yellow box honey today gave me time to reflect on the prospects for apiculture (bee keeping) as a sustainable and resilient livelihood in the future. I have never been a bee keeper (due to adverse reactions to stings) but my enthusiasm for apiculture goes back a long way.

The immune system must distinguish between innocuous and pathological antigens to prevent unnecessary and self-destructive immune responses (22, 23). The present study focuses on how soluble protein antigens encountered via skin exposure are tolerated. Key findings of the present study concern the time-span and allergen-dependence of allergen-specific peripheral T cell tolerance. The cytokine profile of memory T cells specific for PLA show an IL-10- and IFN-γ-predominant profile outside of beekeeping season. Upon bee venom exposure, an immediate switch of allergen-specific T cells from Th1 and Th2 cells toward IL-10-secreting Tr1 cells occurs within a few days. These sequential events are repeated every year. At the end of every season when there is no exposure, the peripheral T cell response returns to the same levels as seen before exposure within 2 to 3 mo. The changes in cytokine profile, T cell proliferation, and cutaneous late-phase response show parallel changes, demonstrating that the T ...
By Jim Cooperman, Observer contributor. The initiative to re-open the South Canoe School as an outdoor learning school is attracting significant support from parents and the local community, with over 110 "intent to register" forms completed.. It is an opportune time, as Salmon Arm schools are bursting at the seams with students due to increased enrollment and the court decision mandating smaller class sizes. Interest in outdoor learning is skyrocketing, due in part to technological and social changes that have resulted in a growing disconnect between young people and the natural world.. There are many advantages to using the South Canoe School, which is located on five acres of land with one acre that is forested, where outdoor classrooms could be located. Agriculture could be part of the curriculum, as there would be opportunities for gardening, beekeeping and animal husbandry. Another option would be to engage the students in restoration efforts, such as planting trees on some of the cleared ...

Red Deers EcoLiving Fair asks the question: Is there a better way?. More than two dozen entrepreneurs and groups united in the conviction that the answer is yes gathered at Red Deer College on Saturday.. Visitors were challenged to look from a different perspective at the way we drive, live, build, eat, drink and manage our environment and health at the event hosted by ReThink Red Deer and the college. Workshops on everything from beekeeping and rainwater harvesting to solar energy were held throughout the day.. Brenda Barritt represented Alberta Food Matters, an organization dedicated to reconnecting people, land and food. It works to achieve this by connecting the many community initiatives across the province aimed at taking a more sustainable approach to producing the food we eat.. Besides showcasing their efforts to the public, the EcoLiving Fair gives vendors an opportunity to talk about their progress and new initiatives, said Barritt, who runs Alix-based Earth Works Farms, which ...

Hobby beekeeping has become increasingly popular in California. Although generally docile, honey bees (Apis mellifera) can and may sting. As part of a hives reproductive process, a healthy hive may attempt to divide and swarm. Responsible management is, therefore, necessary to avoid creating problems for neighbors. This document is intended as a reference and standard for small scale urban and suburban honey bee management in the Mt. Diablo region. It may serve as a resource for information to reinforce community confidence in the safety of beekeeping activities; a standard reference for addressing complaints or conflicts about beekeeping activities in the region; and a collection of best management practices that MDBA members are encouraged to follow.. ...
WHAT IS THE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP? What is high fructose corn syrup? In the 1970s, Japanese researchers discovered a process that converted cornstarch into a sweetener called high fructose corn syrup (hfcs). It contained 55% fructose, and 45% glucose, which makes it as sweet as sucrose (aka table sugar-about 50% each fructose and glucose). In Canada, hfcs will be identified in ingredient lists as glucose/fructose. As the price of sugar increased (as most sugar is imported), food processors began to use high fructose corn syrup more often. It is much cheaper, as corn is grown in abundance...

Honey bees (Apis mellifera L.) are the most important insect for pollination of crops and wildflowers [1-3], but they have experienced increasing colony die-offs during the past two decades [4-6]. Varroa destructor is widely considered the most serious risk factor for honey bee colony mortality worldwide [7-10]. These large ectoparasitic mites are associated with a condition known as parasitic mite syndrome (PMS), or "Varroosis". In colonies exhibiting PMS or "Varroosis", pathogens, including brood diseases and viruses, are present at unusually high levels [11-13]. Varroa mites feed on the hemolymph of the larva, pupa and adults, and the open wounds caused by mite feeding can allow microorganisms to enter and weaken the host [14]; Mites themselves are vectors for viruses and perhaps other bee pathogens [13]. The Varroa mites life cycle consists of two phases, the phoretic phase, during which the adult female mite lives, feeds, and disperses on the adult bee, and the reproductive phase in which ...
Treatment failure during venom immunotherapy (VIT) may be associated with a variety of risk factors. Our aim was to evaluate the association of baseline serum tryptase concentration (BTC) and of other parameters with the frequency of VIT failure during the maintenance phase. In this observational prospective multicenter study, we followed 357 patients with established honey bee or vespid venom allergy after the maintenance dose of VIT had been reached. In all patients, VIT effectiveness was either verified by sting challenge (n = 154) or patient self-reporting of the outcome of a field sting (n = 203). Data were collected on BTC, age, gender, preventive use of anti-allergic drugs (oral antihistamines and/or corticosteroids) right after a field sting, venom dose, antihypertensive medication, type of venom, side effects during VIT, severity of index sting reaction preceding VIT, and duration of VIT. Relative rates were calculated with generalized additive models. 22 patients (6.2%) developed ...
The honey bee Apis mellifera plays an important role for the pollination of fruit and vegetable plants, besides its significance for the production of honey and wax. Losses of entire bee colonies during winter have economic and - in particular - ecological consequences as pollinators are missing in spring during blossom. Apiculture in North America and Europe is especially affected by partly massive losses. Only during the winter months of 2014/2015, up to fifty per cent of all bee colonies in some Austrian regions collapsed.. The main trigger of this bee mortality does not seem to be the use of pesticides in modern agriculture. Many studies have shown that the survival of bee colonies strongly depends on the infestation with Varroa mites, widespread blood-sucking parasites, and the transmission of deformed wing virus by these mites. A research group from the Institute of Virology at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna has developed a new laboratory system, which enabled them to make ...
The dynamics of viruses are critical to our understanding of disease pathogenesis. Using honey bee Deformed wing virus (DWV) as a model, we conducted field and laboratory studies to investigate the roles of abiotic and biotic stress factors as well as host health conditions in dynamics of virus replication in honey bees. The results showed that temperature decline could lead to not only significant decrease in the rate for pupae to emerge as adult bees, but also an increased severity of the virus infection in emerged bees, partly explaining the high levels of winter losses of managed honey bees, Apis mellifera, around the world. By experimentally exposing adult bees with variable levels of parasitic mite Varroa destructor, we showed that the severity of DWV infection was positively correlated with the density and time period of Varroa mite infestation, confirming the role of Varroa mites in virus transmission and activation in honey bees. Further, we showed that host conditions have a significant impact
The European honey bee (Apis mellifera) is of global importance as a pollinator. Over the past 30 years an increase in colonies lost during winter has occurred, particularly in the northern hemisphere. These losses are attributed to the ectoparasitic mite Varroa destructor that acts as a vector of RNA viruses, most notably Deformed wing virus (DWV). Three master variants of the DWV have been discovered; Type-A, B, and C. The increase in overwinter colony losses are closely linked to DWV. At the same time DWV may also offer protection to colonies via superinfection exclusion (SIE), which may be linked to Varroa-tolerant colonies. However, the role of each DWV variant in colony survivorship and mite-tolerance is limited, so the main thrust of the thesis is to address this issue ...

The Asian market is potentially very large and with proper marketing should have tremendous value. In Asia, consumer preferences and traditions differ from those prevailing in Europe and North America and have facilitated marketing and increased production. Local cosmetic industries in particular, have very great potential for growth once quality and marketing (most of all packaging) approach the levels of Western competitors. The use of royal jelly in cosmetics has led to some very successful products. In one case (in Thailand) a business originally based on cosmetics with royal jelly and other bee products was so successful that it grew into a multimillion dollar enterprise.. While these successful companies became large operations, there is still plenty of room for small, local businesses (beauty parlours, vendors, pharmacies and others) to formulate articles containing bee products and in particular, royal jelly.
