Differentiation of Ascosphaera apis isolates by rep-PCR fingerprinting and determination of chalkbrood incidence in Argentinean honey samples



Differentiation of Ascosphaera apis isolates by rep-PCR fingerprinting and determination of chalkbrood incidence in Argentinean honey samples



Journal of Apicultural Research 42(4): 68-76



Ascosphaera apis, the causative agent of chalkbrood disease in honey bee larvae, occurs throughout the world and is found in many beekeeping areas of Argentina. Microbiological analysis of 394 honey samples from Buenos Aires province from 3 years of sampling (1999-2001) yielded 51 positive cases (13% incidence).
