Description Of Disease

A "_post mortem_" examination revealed the following circumstances:

Nine-tenths of the breeding-cells were found to contain young bees in

the larva state, stretched out at full length, sealed over, dead,

black, putrid, and emitting a disagreeable stench. Now here was one

link in the chain of cause and effect. I learned why there was a

scarcity of bees in the hive. What should have constituted their

increase, had died in the cells; none of them were removed,

consequently but few cells, where any bees could be matured, were left.
