Abstract

We have studied microbiota of the intestinal tract of honey bees and the effect of various preparations and feed additives, in particular hydrohemol. It was established that feeding of hydrohemol in a mixture with candy caused a decrease in the pathogenic microbiota of the digestive tract of bees. This creates the most favorable conditions for the further development of the bee colonies and, as a result, an increase in their honey production.
