Book Description:
American foulbrood (AFB) is a severe bacterial disease that affects larvae of honey bees (Apis mellifera). The causative agent is the spore forming bacteria Paenibacillus larvae. The use of antibiotics has led to the appearance of resistant bacterial strains and residues in beehive products. Nowadays, antibiotics are legally banned in several countries, and the affected colonies have to be destroyed by burning the hives. Therefore, the development of alternative therapeuctic methods for the control and prevention of AFB is necessary. The present monograph reviews the traditional methods used for the control of AFB, and the natural strategies based on the application of essential oils, plant extracts, propolis, royal jelly, nonconventional natural molecules, bacteria and bacteriocines, assessed in vitro and in vivo for the prevention and control of P. larvae. This book also discusses the experimental data achieved from these studies, and intends to be a starting point for future research in the field. (Imprint: Nova)

Book Reviews

“Professor Sandra Fuselli and co-workers have written an excellent paper on control and prevention of American Foulbrood (AFB). This paper is a “must read” for anyone working in the field of honeybees diseases, especially for those working with AFB. In this comprehensive manuscript, Professor Sandra Fuselli and co-workers have brought a whole lot of information about the prevention and control measurements to fight AFB, spanning from traditional control methods to the newest alternative control methods. This is an essential work for undergraduates, academics and professionals in the field of bee diseases.” - Professor Juan M. Marioli, Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto, Argentina

“American foulbrood has been and continues to be one of the major problems in the health of honey bees. The merit of this monograph is that it brings together the most up-to‐date knowledge and scientific advances in the field; it contains important information and gives us a generalized view of the current problems with regard to disease control. This monograph thus makes an extremely interesting addition to the literature since it not only covers the most relevant information but it does it in a global context.” - Jessica Martínez, PhD, Principal Investigator, Honey Bees Research Laboratory, Center of Regenerative Medicine, Clínica Alemana--‐Universidad del Desarrollo
