For the first time in America, A Vaccination for bees Approved. The product is designed to protect bees against American foulbrood (AFB), a global bacterial disease that infects and kills bee brood, said producer Dalen Animal Health. According to the manufacturer, this is the world’s first approved vaccine for bees. It is given to animals with fodder juice.
The US Department of Agriculture confirms approval
The US Department of Agriculture confirmed the permit. This is a first for an insect in the United States. “We believe the availability of this product will help prevent and/or treat American foulbrood disease in bees given their important role in U.S. agriculture in terms of pollination,” the department said.
The bacterium infects bee larvae
Fullbrood is caused by a highly resistant bacterium that only attacks and kills bee larvae. Because antibiotics cannot fight the disease, infected bees and bee colonies are often destroyed. Plague is harmless to humans. The disease also occurs in Germany again and again. Fullbred, meanwhile, which has spread to all continents, is worth noting. If in doubt, notify your veterinarian immediately. A restricted area will be established around the outbreak areas.
