I have had the privilage of viewing all known brood diseases and other infections of the hive at first hand at the National Bee Unit.

I have tried to show members what to look for when carrying out a hive inspection.

I hope its of some help.

The remainder are following on.

That is really good, thank you for sharing that. Hi everyone, I am new to beekeeping and to this forum, I wander if anyone has any suggestions for good books on bee diseases etc?
Thanks.

And the talk Bcrazy gives with these slides is truly fascinating. I was lucky enough to hear him last month at the CBKA.
Thanks Bcrazy for a taking the time to remind us, and re-fresh our memories of the P&D's out there.

In my first year of keeping. Have put on supers and one month on the bees have drawn comb on four frames in the super and filled but not capped them with honey however there are four or five cells which are about half full and definitely grey. Should I be worried?

It's probably pollen, they do store pollen in the supers, it won't be a brood disease as the queen shouldn't be in there laying.....always assuming you have a queen excluder on. :)

Yes there is a queen excluder on so I am greatly releived. Would you recommend leaving this honey for them for the winter or wait a month and take it?

The photos and information are really useful, it must have taken a lot of time to put together.
Thank you :)

Hello Bcrazy/all;
I'm new here (and new to beekeeping) I wanted to look thru the Diseases pic files but all I can see is a blank box with the word "thumbernails attached" but not actual pictures- any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I can see from comments that others can see them no problem so I suspect is something on my settings but don't know what(?) If anyone know please let me know; have a problem on my new hives and trying to figure out what it is, wanted to check pics before asking ;)
thank you
sara

Nothing wrong with your settings. You could start a new thread in the beginners section after looking at JWF's links from the NBU.
