Remedial Experiments

As for remedies, I tried pruning out all those combs containing brood,

leaving only such as contained honey, and let the bees construct new

for breeding. It was "no use," these new combs were invariably filled

with diseased brood! The only thing effectual was to drive out the

bees, into an empty hive. In this way, when done in season, I generally

succeeded in rearing a healthy stock. But here was a loss of all

surplus honey, and a swarm or two that might have been obtained from a

healthy one.
