ABSTRACT

Honey bee colonies in Peloponnesos, Greece, were sampled in spring 2014 to evaluate efficacy of Provigoro®, a natural water acidifier, against Nosema spp. Colonies treated with Provigoro® showed reduced Nosema spore load than did colonies that received only sugar syrup treatment, which finally collapsed. Preliminary results suggest that Provigoro® was successful at reducing nosemosis in Apis mellifera colonies.
