The Cause Uncertain

But when I attempted the next link in the chain (to wit) What caused

the death of this brood just at this stage of development? I was

obliged to stop. Not the least satisfaction could be obtained. All

inquiries among the bee-keepers of my acquaintance were met with

profound ignorance. They had "never heard of it!" No work on bees that

I consulted ever mentioned it.

Subsequently, I had more stocks in the same situation. I found,

whenever the disease existed to any extent, that the few bees matured

were insufficient to replace those that were lost; that the colony

rapidly declined, and _never afterwards cast a swarm_!
