Nosema is a fungal disease commonly found in honey bees. Honey bees unknowingly consume nosema causing spores whether from contaminated honeycomb or by interactions with other bees. Once the bee has consumed these spores, they begin to germinate in the bee’s mid-gut. Eventually, this leaves the bee with nutrient loss and cell damage. The weakened bee is then more susceptible to disease and is also less productive. One nosema spore can multiply into several million spores within one worker bee. These spores pass through the honey bee’s system which can further contaminate the hive and neighboring colonies.
