FOUL BROOD THE BEE KEEPER'S
So Remedy for the DLneaae Save
traction of Everytliiiifr Contaminated
The IIitrneM 5rlcaltural Notes and
Damage From Foul Brood.
This is probably tho worst disease
that the bee keeper has to contend
with, and many a man ha-; gone out
of the business discouraged through
the losses sustained in this way.
When the disease is once established
in the hives the rapidity of its devel
opment is so great that iu a few days
the whole hive is ruined. It is es
sential that a strict watch should be
kept up for the first appearance of
the disease, and as soon as the tirst
sisrns arc discovered radical remedies
must be administered immediately.
Foul brood has long been recoir
nized by apiarists as a disease very
formidable in its nature, but there
has been -o much ignorance concern
ing it that very few have known how
to deal with it promptly. After years
of examination the best authorities
ciaim that the disease is caused by
i the bacillus alvei. small rod-like bac-
i teria that multiply so rapidly that
in five days a single larva may pro-
duce a billion more. These germs
are very small, and even through a
small magnifying glass they are
sometimes invisible. It is only
through their numbers and rapid
multiplication that the danger comes
in, and unless checked eariy in their
growth the bees will be ruined. The
baeilli not only attack the brood, as
was supposed at one time, but they
also often destroy the mature bees.
In fact, every part of the colony and
hive becomes infected. o that it is
not safe to use any of it for another
colony until fire has purged every
thing. The best remedy for foul brood is
to destroy everything, writes Annie
' C W ebster. in the American Culti
vator. The disease must be stamned
' out, unless tho risk is to Ixs takn of
having all the colonies attacked It
' there is only one diseased colony or. ,

take hive, bees, brood and every
thing and burn thm up at once
That will stamp tho disease out im
mediately. Partial remedic- are applied by
taking the foul brood out of the
hive, and then submitting the hive
to boiling water for half an hour.
Both hive and frames are u-ed again
after they are thoroughly boiled
Tlie good honey can also be saved, as
well as the wax, but neither should
be used as food for the bees, as the
slightest germ left on them may
cause the disease to spread again. It
is better to destroy and lese every
thing than to have other hives con
taminated by careless methods.
Some apiarists spray the colonies
with germicides, and partial success
has been obtained in this way.
Salicylic acid anl carbolic acid have
been used for this purpose, but such
spraying is not recommended except
by experienced bee keepers, who
understand, the nature of the bee as
well as all of their diseases. Many
of the best bee keepers agree that
this spraying, even in the han is of
expert, hardly pays for the trouble
demanded, and that the best remedy
is to stamp out the disease with fire
and boiling water After handling
tne foul brood, however tne hands
should be carefully disinfected by
washing in two quarts of water with
one-sixteenth of an ounce of mercury
chloride dissolved in it. This should
be done every time before handling
Man-tsrement of the liariiesn.
Mud is more destructive to leather
than moderate wear.and so oneof the
chief things to be observed in ihe
care of harness is to keep it clean
and the pores filled with proper in
gredients to increase thepliableness
' and at the same time render the
leather impervious to water. One
thing to remember in cleaning a har
ness is the mud which has accumu
lated is not to be taken o'f by rub
bing; if it is dry (and it should
never be allowed to become so if it is
possible to prevent it), soak it well
and let it get soft, so that by throw
ing on water it will run off. When
harness is to receive a thorough
dressing unbuckle every strap and
wash clean with warm soft water,
in which there is a little castile
soap, using a sponge or ciotn. and
when nearly dry apply the oil. Vege
table oils, with the exception of
castor oil, should not be applied to
the harness, as thev are hardening
