Nucs from a yard with SHB
« on: July 11, 2009, 01:51:37 PM »
I've got SHB in my yard, but I want to sell nucs next spring. Is this going to be a problem?  How can I deal with it?

So does about everybody else in the south. In NC, you are required to tell the buyer, but no other restrictions here.

When they're in every hive and even shook swarms its kind of unavoidable. Keep the bees strong and they cope.
