IU Researchers identify microbe that supports honey bee larvae through nutrient scarcity

IU researchers concluded that Bombella apis, a microbe supplemented to honey bee larvae, performs a big function within the well being of a colony. 

Honey bee larvae get meals and vitamins from sister bees who present nectar, pollen and a substance referred to as royal jelly. It is a nutrient-rich secretion that honey bees raised to be queens eat their entire lives. Different bees eat nectar and pollen inside a couple of days. Bombella apis is the one identified bacterium in a position to survive within the royal jelly and gives rather more vitamin by means of amino acids.
