PHOTO FOR AMERICAN FOULBROOD


Recommended Posts

My name is Karakousis Dimitris and I am from Greece. I'm a teacher and beekeeper. I have written some books on beekeeping and I am preparing one that is related to bee diseases. I need your help. I need a couple of pictures of American foulbrood. Do you have any such photo? I will mention in the book the source of the photographs and I will send a copy as a gift to the one who will give me.
Yours sincerely

Oh crud .... nice new plastic frame ...... judging by facebook .... looks like the bottom of the North island has gone on red alert today.

* South Wairarapa beekeeper

* 275 (32%) of hives owned by the beek found to be infected with afb

* 14 sites with robbed out hives.

 

Reminiscent of that guy down in Canterbury not that long ago. In this case, again, i have no sympathy for the culprit and am glad they have been caught. I'm sure we'll have people chiming in again saying that its mean to judge, that seems to be how it goes.

He burnt 89 hives.  Agency burnt 196.  But what about the supers etc.

With the exception of undiagnosed dementia, stroke or tumour, I can’t think of any back story that makes these levels of neglect acceptable.

 

Like our Canterbury issue, with >30% affected, how could any of it be considered safe. I would “give a little” to buy some new gear & to see every piece of their gear burnt.

In both the recent cases it would be interesting to know if they are new Beekeeping who have bought say 100 hives and split to increase their numbers quickly, the stock they bought/split was already infected and this is the end result.

That's an AFB bomb waiting to explode

What was in that photo @Stoney ? One sunken cell ? Or other sunken cells in the frame but not in that photo . . .?

I took that pic back in spring John, from memory the next frame was a bit worse. 

However One bad cell is all we need to burn it. 

Usually go no further through it once one goopy cell is confirmed, unless there are apprentices on site, they always get a good look through and an education session.

More feet on the ground inspecting does cost more money, however, any improvement is welcomed.

Hotdogdamdiggettydog .  I got nothing to say this time yer honour, except that the only reason we are'nt expanding in a time of  low hive prices is that experienced beekeepers are like hens teeth.

I would have thought this coming off season would be a good chance of hooking some fresh fish, there must be a few goodies swimming around searching for new horizons after this season surely??
