Screening and monitoring the prevalence of American and European foulbrood diseases, Nosema infection, Varroa and honeybee tracheal mites, as well as other common pests and pathogens in U.S colonies. We are also in a key position to recognize and identify novel or emerging pest and diseases that we may encounter through apiary inspectors or beekeepers. We support various scientific research projects conducted at the USDA Bee Lab aimed at identifying new controls to reduce the impact of pests and pathogens on honey bee health.
