Hi members,
I am very much into microscopy as I find this helps me understand the functionand form of the Honey Bee.

I also test for diseases as I have te required licience.
The workings of the internal organs are of great interest to me as it shows how the bee lives and eats etc.

I would like to show you a small presentation on the internal organs of the bee.

























If you have any questions please ask away.

Regards;

All I can say is, Bcrazy is a long ways from being crazy. That is a fantastic presentation and I'm sure will be used by many.

THANK YOU

Fantastic pictures. Thanks for sharing.

What kind of a license do you have to test for diseases.

Hi ski,

The licience is to allow me to handle Foul Brood frames, for whatever purpose I need them. I use them to show members what AFB & EFB look like on a frame, also other diseases such as sac brood, chalk brood, and all the other diseases that bees suffer.
As when I have finished using them I have to burn them so no disease is spread.

Another side to microscpy is pollen identification which is helpful to know what plants the bees are feeding on.

Bee Catcher & ski thank you for those kind and encouraging words.

Regards;

Love this section. As a vet tech I look at things all the time under the microscope so it was facinating. I might have to do some bee research of my own.

Does anyone know if there is a pollen guide I can use as a reference?

pm Bcrazy, he had several pics of pollen under the microscope and it was identified.

he only comes on here every now and then but is very friendly and knowledgeable.
