Disease Diagnosed: European Foulbrood (EFB)
Your Apiaries At Risk: JC – GU10
Please be vigilant and examine your colonies carefully, advising us if you have concerns. For help in recognizing disease, you can view our Foul Brood leaflet, or for more information please visit BeeBase online at
Priority Inspection Visits of apiaries will be continued in areas where disease has been confirmed.
