    and a snip....
    In contrast, N. ceranaeis not associated with diarrhea

    tecumseh:
    in talking about nosema c. with other beekeepers there does seem to be more that a small amount of confusion in regards to this symptom that is common in nosema a.

    The confusion is why I thought it important. There are plenty of internet intellectuals spreading false information.

    tecumseh:
    internet intellectuals.... now that has a nice rhetorical ring to it and I at least would hope that is one group to which I never become a member. I do believe that some understanding via reading is worth while for beekeepers new or old but at the end of the day beekeeping is very much about practice and implementation and not some clean intellectual exercise.

    of course I have read a lot of stuff on the net that looks pretty suspect but sometime questioning such experts will get you into a bit of trouble.

    and thanks for the link....

    Perhaps, unless that intellectual exercise is by a group of entomologists majoring in apiculture that have access to thousands of hives in several states and countries, and research tools we could never buy.I have the pleasure of working with several in my new job. They can work hives pretty good too. I thought I would be in the free world when I left military intelligence, but there are non-disclosure agreements in research also.
