Host sharing by the honey bee parasites Lotmaria passim and Nosema ceranae

Abstract: The trypanosome Lotmaria passim and the microsporidian Nosema ceranae are common parasites of the honey bee, Apis mellifera, intestine, but the nature of interactions between them is unknown. Here, we took advantage of naturally occurring infections and quantified infection loads of individual workers (N = 408) originating from three apiaries (four colonies per apiary) using PCR to test for interactions between these two parasites. For that purpose, we measured the frequency of single and double infections, es… Show more

“…Co-infection by N. ceranae and L. passim was also previously established in honeybee samples from Switzerland (Tritschler et al, 2017). Infection of both N. ceranae and C. mellificae parasites was described for honeybees from Belgian apiaries (Ravoet et al, 2013) (see Fig.…”
