Dalan Animal Health understands how immunity in honeybees works. This has allowed us to develop an industry-first method to impart protection and improve resilience to brood disease.
The Dalan vaccine technology exposes queen bees to inactive (i.e., “dead”) bacteria, which enables the larvae hatched in the hive to resist infection.
Dalan can assist in creating a custom vaccination program for your operation that is compatible with a variety of commonly used queen cages.
In tests, immune priming showed no negative impact on queen fitness.

Our tests also show no negative impact on honey. Our product is chemical free, non-GMO, and organic.
