Product Information:

Askosan is a powder active against fungi of the genera Ascosphaera and Aspergillus. Aspergillus fungi can cause dangerous viral problems for the honey bee and is suspected to be the reason for the decline in the honey be population worldwide. Ascosphaera is passed on by insect pathogens which cause the chalkbrood disease that can heavily effect honey bees.
