  1. " Honeybee larvae are most susceptible to infection by the bacteria's spores within the first 36 hours after egg hatching when larvae are fed with accidentally contaminated food. After metamorphosis bees are not susceptible to infection by the spores. As pupa they are not fed, and as adults they are able to void any spores they ingest. "

     

    This implies to me they are able to voluntarily void spores. I presume that they are voided in the normal course of defecation ?
