American foulbrood is a disease of the larvae of the honeybee caused by a sporeforming organism, Bacillus larvae White (1920), and is considered the most serious of all bee diseases. The unusual resistance of the spores to heat and disinfectants (White, 1920; Sturtevant, 1926; Burnside, 1940) has resulted in the development of a variety of methods for control based on their effectiveness in destroying these spores. The burning of diseased and contaminated material has been univerally accepted… Expand
Antimicrobial activity of camphor tree silver nano-particles against foulbrood diseases and finding out new strain of Serratia marcescens via DGGE-PCR, as a secondary infection on honeybee larvae
TLDR
It could be concluded that greenly synthesized silver nanoparticles is projected to be used as effective treatment for honeybee bacterial diseases. Expand
Screening additional antibiotics for efficacy against American foulbrood
TLDR
The sensitivity of Paenibacillus larvae larvae larvae (American foulbrood, AFB) to 35 antibiotics and synthetic antimicrobials was investigated, and the polyether ionophores seemed to represent potential alternative treatments for AFB, but were inactive in the field. Expand
Screening alternative antibiotics against oxytetracycline-susceptible and -resistant Paenibacillus larvae
TLDR
Bacterial resistance to OTC also conferred resistance to other tetracyclines, although the level of resistance varied, and Rifampicin was by far the most active antibiotic tested, but since it is used against tuberculosis, registration of this material for agricultural use is unlikely. Expand
THERMAL RESISTANCE OF BACILLUS LARVAE SPORES IN HONEY
TLDR
Although Burnside (1945) reported that "boiling for 30 minutes can be depended upon to destroy the virulence of Bacillus larvae under ordinary conditions", the authors have been advised (Hambleton, 1950) that any processing of honey for bee feeding must guarantee absence of viable spores of this organism, not simply destruction of virulence.

Honeybee-Specific Lactic Acid Bacterium Supplements Have No Effect on American Foulbrood-Infected Honeybee Colonies
The previously demonstrated antagonistic effects of honeybee-derived bacterial microbiota on the infectivity and pathogenicity of P. larvae in laboratory bioassays have identified a possible newExpand
Evaluation of Some New Compounds in Controlling American Foul Brood
TLDR
The colonies treated with doxycycline became visually free of the disease in less time than those treated with any other compound, and there was no recurrence by June of the following year. Expand
An unusually heavy contamination of honey products by Clostridium botulinum type F and Bacillus alvei.
TLDR
The high count of C. botulinum in the honey might have been due to the possible stimulation of growth by B. alvei or some other microorganisms at some stage of honey ripening, and no difference in pH, hydroxymethyl furfural contents or diastase activity was found between them. Expand
Antimicrobials in beekeeping.
TLDR
The bee diseases American and European foulbrood and nosemosis can be treated with anti-infectious agents, but in the EU and the USA the use of these agents in beekeeping is strictly regulated due to the lack of tolerance for residues of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics in honey. Expand
New evidence showing that the destruction of gut bacteria by antibiotic treatment could increase the honey bee’s vulnerability to Nosema infection
TLDR
New evidence is added that antibiotic treatment in combination with stress, associated with Nosema infection, significantly and negatively impacts honey bee survival and leads to the complex problem of antibiotic resistance but can impact honey bee disease resistance. Expand
Therapeutic Applications of Honey and its Phytochemicals: Vol.1
Honey, a thick, viscous, sugary food substance, produced by honeybees has a history of use since thousands of years. Due to its concentrated sweetness and energy condensed properties, it is used asExpand

TLDR
Consideration of the media on which Bacillus larvae has been successfully cultivated suggests that accessory growth factors are required for the nutrition of the organism, since most of the addenda found necessary for growth contain substances, which, in the light of more recent nutritional studies, are needed for various species of the more "fastidious" micro-organisms.
