AFB chit chat

Recommended Posts

Going back to O/A is a bit like letting strangers in to my bubble.  Inevitable. I just hope I get it right next time !

OA is not set and forget option and any issues I have had with strips have been my mismanagement and lack of attention at a critical time .

I am going to have a through look through my hives tomorrow .

I have just learnt that the beek who has had hives on my place had to burn 150 hives because of AFB.

I am hoping this happened in the motueka area after he moved his lot to mine .

It is a tragedy for him, it was his breeders .

3 ,yrs ago his breeders were wiped out by floods .

The Riwaka area  is a real hot spot for AFB now .

Sweet Mother of Dog ......🤒   where the heck did all that come from ....?

Riwaka developed a big AFB problem a few yrs ago .

My beek lives there and has had his opperation there for over 40 yrs.

I have been told one of his new guys was too casual and missed it and spread it everywhere .

lol, that took me a while to work out you weren't being funny about the amount of content he'd put in the post.

A selective quote may have been a better option, I"ll put together a guide.

The importance of identifying these staff members and changing sometimes many many yrs of attitude and habits can be difficult but not impossible.. it’s much much easier to remove the bad apple early before the whole fruit bowl goes off.. as in this case.. now facing many sleepless nights wondering how far it’s gone through his outfit. 

Next spring may be an eye opener.. 

kaihoka keep your chin up, complete your inspections thoroughly and keep your hives gear separate and I’m sure you will be fine.. if it’s there to be seen you will find it..
