  4. So if the beekeepers are the problem then how on earth can the beekeepers solve the problem....they need help!
  5. Yes it does...the Agency have many times hold us that any test results/trials or scientific papers on AFB Detector Dogs done overseas do not count ! There was a trial done in Australia on AFB Detector Dogs. They have also said it is to be done by an independent and a Government department. As Rene has already mentioned, MPI have offered several times. And Yes an experience beekeeper will find raging AFB a mile off....but one infected AFB cell not so easy!
