First the SHB wiped out my 2 hives 7 months ago. Now after a summer of catching swarms, buying queens and nursing things along now it appears as thoug one of my hives has AFB.

Some depressed on 2 of the brood combs with a few with holes in the top and when I opened a couple the stringy brown residue of the larva.

Will post some pics when I can

So depressing :'(

What can I do except advise the DPI as regulations required

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
