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;

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?
