Özet:Colony losses, which are remarkable in the world for more than ten years, are regarded as bee health problems arising from the interaction of different factors and agents. The viruses, Nosema ceranae and Varroa destructor among the disease agents threaten the colony health, have significant importance. In this study, the honeybee samples delivered to our laboratory from different apiaries in Tekirdağ province between 2015 and 2016, were examined. Samples were sent by complaints with "unexpected decrease in colony populations or sudden colony loss". A total of 510 honey bee samples from 17 apiaries were tested for Deformed Wing Virus (DWV), Nosema cerenae and Varroa destructor. DWV and N.cerena were detected in 15 and 5 apiaries, respectively while varroosis was detected in all apiaries. N. ceranae was not be detected in the DWV negative two apiaries. In this study, it was concluded that considering the presence of DWV, Nosema cerena and Varroa destructor in sudden colony losses resemble case, and it would be advantageous the precaution and treatment strategies for bees against these pathogens.
