Abstract:The Texas Agricultural Experiment Station is conducting investigational work in bee keeping with head quarters in Bexar County, near San Antonio, Mr. H. B. Parks in eharge. It is planned to make a thorough study of honey plants and of nectar secretion. There are two experimental yards in charge of well versed, practical bee keeppers, one in southwest Texas and the other in north Texas and also small apiaries at each of seven different sub-stations.
The foul brood control work is vested in the chief of the Division of Entomology as State Entomologist with two inspectors attached to the office and ten local inspectors distributed in various parts of the State. A numerical summary of the work is given. Treatment for American foul brood is discouraged and destruction of the inflected colonies urged.
