That's the minimum contact time that alcohol wipes have shown to be effective against spore formers such as P. larvae var larvae (AFB). If you don't leave that contact time then the spores can simlply be damaged but given nutritious conditions they can repair the damage

So, if you're moving between a group of hives you have at a site, is there a quicker sterilisation technique?
eg Dipping in a bleach solution?

Dip in metho and flame or dip in your smoker - instantaneous sterilisation

What about gloves, brush etc? I wouldn't want to flame up the painted handle of the hive tool...
