Now that it seems as though I have both AFB and the SHB (under control) in one of my hives I have been wondering if the SHB will carry the AFB spores from one hive to another.

Or will the SHB larva from an infected hive carry the spores with it into the ground and then carry them when they become beetles

To me, vexing questions  huh


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,

Just as likely that the drones, drift bees, and robbers will spread the spores just as well as any SHB could... Cry

Sorry to hear about it. -r
