Effect of Lactic Bacteria on <i>Ascosphaera apis</i> and <i>A. atra </i>
Keywords:Lactobacillus, Ascosphaera, antifungal action
AbstractThe lactic bacteria contribute to fermentation of corbiculae pollen and beebread production. Three species of Lactobacillus, isolated from beebread for the first time in Jujuy (Argentine), formed a monophyletic clade separate from others bee intestinal strains. Lactic bacteria isolated in this work affected the growth and sporulation of Ascosphaera apis and Ascosphaera atra, and they can provide to beehive a protection against ascospores.
