I've just seen your new tag 'forum microscopist' Great title, just one issue ......

Given the role the logo is clearly far too big, suggest it is reduced x400 to ensure in keeping. Will you post some of the output? would be great to see. R

Thanks guys for reminding me.

Mr Truman do you mind if I post your results for everyone to see regarding the Nosema test I carried out? If I remember correctly I think you menntioned that the bees were from a dead colony anyway.

The queen with the green spot had been dead a few days as her internal organs were all black anf of no use unfortunatly, the other queens were Ok but only just you'll see by the photos.
But on saying this I would like to thank you all very much for sending me the queens and bees. THANK YOU.

sorry about the photo's I needed to change camera, also I managed to find the spermtheca but dropped the bloody slide on the carpet so now I have a spermatheca in the carpet somewhere. For a while the air turned blue.

Just revamping the kitchen, what a mess.
I'll have to post on the next post number as I do not have access to the photos for downloading.

Hi Tim,
Soory for the delay. On the slides you will notice what look like rice grains , well they are the Nosema spores.
