A propolis curtain already being built by bees to narrow their entrance and it's not even autumn. But it is getting close to varroa control treatment time. http://www.vita-europe.com/products/apiguard/

Here's what might be happening above your head in special places and you mightn't even notice. Here is a 30 second clip of life in a Drone Congregation Area where honeybee Queens go to mate.

There's already been a great response to the Vita Photo Competition with entries so far from every continent except South America (and Antarctica!). Plenty of time left to enter, but time closing in on the Honeybee Health awards.

Vita's Blogger has been out and about and discovered a second Drone Congregation Area, but the mystery locating algorithm remains.

Here's a bee removal, Vita's Guest Blogger wished he'd never started! Above the head, very shallow comb, rain sneaking in and very stroppy bees ...

Bees deliberately infected with Nosema  were 4.3 times less likely to be carrying pollen than uninfected bees, and carried less pollen when they were. This and more in fascinating new Australian research. 
Here's Vita on Nosema: http://www.vita-europe.com/diseases/nosema/
Finding by Queensland researchers is significant for humans, given about a quarter of food production depends on honey bee pollination

South Australia drops Small Hive Beetle from notifiable pest list and turns to management control. 
"It's a very cryptic pest. It's very hard to find because the little beetles scurry away when you open up the hive and hide ... It will certainly survive and we expect that it will spread, but we are reasonably hopeful that the impact will be similar to what we see in Victoria, where the well managed hives can go a long way toward managing it." 
Vita has a control product: http://www.vita-europe.com/products/beetleblaster/
Small hive beetle has been removed from the notifiable pests list in South Australia.
