A microbiological approach to the causes of migration of honey bees from their hives

A microbiological approach to the causes of migration of honey bees from their hives

Bangladesh Journal of Botany, 101: 53-57

It was observed that Apis cerana bees were leaving their hives in Dacca, Bangladesh, for no apparent reason. A microbiological study of honey from the hives revealed the presence of Bacillus alvei and B. circulans, which were able to develop in crude undiluted honey. It is suggested that the spoilage of their honey stores by bacteria caused the bees to migrate. M. R.
