Disease and Behavior in Honeybees

Bogdan I. GHERMAN, Liviu Al. MARGHITAS, Daniel S. DEZMIREAN and Robin F.A. Moritz    

Abstract: This brief review is mend to present a better idea about the changes of honeybee behavior when certain diseases occur. Lately, massive colony losses have been reported and previous studies proved that not only single disease can destroy a colony, but multiple factors can have a huge impact on the beekeeping industry. This brief review will help to understand better what is to do in the near future in order to avoid losses of colonies of this social insect, the honeybee Apis mellifera. It is very important to have alternatives to traditional treatments of diseases (many chemical substances that we find in medical treatment have been forbidden not only in the EU, but also in many other countries) and to get some answers in order to defeat the threat of industry breakdown due to poorer bee pollination.
