European & American Foul Brood

Wednesday 30th August. Lorrain Johnston, SRUC addressed the Association and presented a document "How to do a disease inspection." At the same meeting she gave a talk on disease prevention.


AFB is a notifiable disease under The Bee Diseases and Pests Control (Scotland) Order 2007 (as amended).  It kills off bee larva, is highly contagious and difficult to eradicate.  Unlike European Foulbrood (EFB) hives with AFB cannot be treated and must be destroyed.
