We have now received the set of 18 prepared Apis mellifera microscope slides from America. This valuable resource includes sections of the head and mouthparts, legs, wings and sting as well as details of queen ovaries and drone testis. In addition smears of Nosema and Bacillus larvae (AFB) are included which will assist in identifying these diseases.
These slides will be available for study at the microscopy workshop and will be presented at a future club meeting. Example images can be seen on the information/microscopy page on this website.
