The causes of paralysis in honeybees during a honeydew flow . 1. The effect of mineral content in honeydew honeys



The causes of paralysis in honeybees during a honeydew flow . 1. The effect of mineral content in honeydew honeys



Apidologie 16(2): 139-155



Honeybee colonies were studied at various locations in the Black Forest (SW Germany) during a honeydew flow from Abies alba. The mineral contents of honey samples and of bees from colonies affected by 'Waldtrachtkrankheit' were compared with those of honey and bees from healthy colonies. Honeydew honeys contained more potassium and phosphorus, and less sodium, than nectar honeys.
