Abstract

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a potent and useful oxidizing agent and a well known disinfectant which is used mainly in water treatment. Stabilized chlorine dioxide can also be used in an oral rinse to treat oral diseases and malodour. As a first step in applying of this disinfectant in bee keeping the inactivating effects for the causative agent of chalkbrood disease were examined. Twenty-two Ascosphaera apis isolates collected from apiaries throughout Hungary were involved in this study. 150 mg/l or higher concentrations of ClO2 were able to inactivate this fungal pathogen also in an environment which contained protein-hydrolisates and other biologically active compounds. Further studies are needed for the examination of biological effects of ClO2 on honey bees, and the usability of this disinfectant in the prevention and therapy of chalkbrood disease of infected bee colonies.
