This is the third video of a series showing the Honey Bee Diagnostics Lab at the USDA in Beltsville, Maryland. This video series will cover the main diagnostic procedures applied when bees are sent to the lab for diagnosis.
In this video, Dr. Humberto Boncristiani and Sam Abban discuss the procedures that follow when new samples arrive in the lab and how long it takes to process and send a diagnostic report back to the beekeeper.
It is critical to address the samples following the methods described to improve the quality of the service.
