« on: December 11, 2013, 02:33:04 pm »
This is a great pdf on honey bee diseases and pests, with excellent photos and information from Penn State or The Mid-Atlantic Apiculture Research and Extension
Consortium (MAAREC):  I have this in a hard copy and this can be ordered from peen state or  perhaps your local beekeeping shop.  contents:

~normal honey bee development
~parasites
~diseases and disease like conditions
~pests
~africanized honey bees

A Field Guide To Honey Bees And Their Maladies

i have also compressed and uploaded the pdf file.

well thanks for the compliment tecumseh, i wish you a good day as well....... :D

as far the download of the file, operator error perhaps?  :D you have two options, either download/save to your pc the attachment, or open the link below it in your browser. you must have a pdf reader installed like adobe or fox-it reader.  both links are working, so am not sure why you couldn't open or save the file?

I purchased a copy of the book.  It's great.  I keep it in my tool bucket so I have it when I go check the hives.

Dandy book to take to the hives, plenty of good clear pics for comparing and good details of what to look for.

We use that Penn State Field Guide in our local bee class.  Each person gets a copy.  The quality of the pictures is excellent.  The descriptions include information I have not found any other place.  For a beginner, a guide like this can  be a life saver.  :)
