I have some CBPV in the apiary but after the initial distressing "kill" the colony recovers and in general does well. This seems to be a common finding suggesting that the queen is pretty much unaffected while the colony itself suffers. I was wondering if the queen herself does get CBPV or is she immune possibly through nutrition or ...... Any thoughts?
