  1. One local major Beekeeping organisation in the Waikato have had an outbreak of AFB and have been burning contaminated boxes for a couple months. Unfortunately they also stacked some on a pallet and wrapped them ready for destruction, but before they could another employee picked up the infected boxes, and mixed them with the other stock. Too often I hear the risk of spreading AFB is elevated by the hobbiest beekeeper, however I do question whether an organisation running 5,000, 10,000 or 30,000 hives can manage, minimise, and contain AFB. I think you would all agree that major operators are as much of a risk to the industry as a hobbiest is. Your thoughts.
