Studies on the effect of the fungus Ascosphaera apis on the larvae of the honey bee Apis mellifera L



Studies on the effect of the fungus Ascosphaera apis on the larvae of the honey bee Apis mellifera L



Polskie Archiwum Weterynaryjne 231: 9-16



In the larvae of Apis mellifera, infection occurs both through the ingestion of Ascosphaera apis spores and by the growth of the fungus through the cuticle. Larvae 5-6 days old were more susceptible after oral and back inoculations. Replication of A. apis appeared in mummified and nonmummified larvae. The fungus may remain viable in the larvae without causing disease.
