Bee Vigilant Against American Foul Brood

Warning from DPI

Bee Vigilant Against American Foul Brood

Riverina beekeepers are being told to remain vigilant against the spread of American Foul Brood.

The fatal and incurable disease can spread from infected bee hives to healthy hives if just one local beekeeper doesn't quarantine and euthanize diseased colonies.

DPI's Dr Chris Anderson says transmission of AFB is as simple as one healthy bee finding an affected hive to steal some honey from.
