    HI Glynn It is illegal to keep AFB infected gear unless you have written permission from the AFB Management Agency. You can apply for a permit to keep this frame for educational purposes by sending an e-mail to Rex Baynes at: rbaynes@ihug.co.nz

    Hi Everyone The AFB Management Agency is working on finding the potential source of this AFB incident, both buyer and seller are being cooperative. This will involve inspections of hives of the beekeeper who supplied the hive and hives surrounding this apiary site, but also beehives in the vicinity of Glyns' apiary site as there is a chance this (strong) hive got AFB by robbing an AFB infected hive in his neighbourhood within the last 6 weeks.
