Bee health has long been trouble-free and not in focus for veterinarians. But in the past two decades, veterinary services for honey bees are required more often. This is due to the parasitic mite Varroa destructor and its associated viruses, but also emergent diseases like the fungal disease Nosema ceranae. In addition, a series of environmental factors negatively influence honey bee health.
Honey bees are food-producing animals and, therefore, health management in apiaries influences food safety. Veterinarians play an increasingly important role in the surveillance of good practices, disease treatments and animal welfare.
BeeSafe is specialized in bee health and offers a variety of online and offline courses for veterinarians.
• Honey bee diseases.
• Honey bee biology and welfare.
• Disease prevention and management.
• Different treatment concepts for Varroa destructor, including registered bee health products in Europe.
• Other managed bee species.
• One health: honey bee health from an ecosystem perspective.
These topics are covered in webinars as well as in workshops or practical training.
