Further, comparison with existing commercial honey bee stocks showed that this feral population contained genetic diversity that might be useful to supplement existing commercial honey bee stocks. ; Seeley, 2007). S. commercial stocks for selection and breeding proposes may be limited. S. honey bees are primarily derived from two European subspecies, A. m. carnica and A. m ligustica. S. S. honey bee populations. S. , 2009). Whether this apparent decline in the number of queen mothers being used for annual queen production is a trend that will continue is 29 30 Honey Bee Colony Health: Challenges and Sustainable Solutions unknown.

It will also have relevance for future honey bee and human probiotics (Olofsson and Vásquez, 2008). Seasonal Differences in Microflora Bees, by nature, are vegetarian and consume only flower nectars and pollen; these are preserved and stored during the winter season in the form of honey and bee bread. In overwintering bees, the rectum (posterior intestine) is greatly distended and can occupy a large part of the abdominal cavity before defecation occurs; it becomes a storage chamber for retained feces during winter months.

In this way, all species can be determined individually and the seasonal dynamics of the bacteria can be observed semi-quantitively. Evaluation of Varroa Mite Tolerance in Honey Bees CHAPTER 3 Ingemar Fries Introduction As part of an effort to promote the development of Varroa mite-tolerant stocks of bees, the BEE DOC (Bees in EuropE & the Decline Of honeybee Colonies) project has surveyed breeding programs and available literature on the subject to formulate recommendations suitable for practical breeding purposes.
