One of the authors recommend not putting hives in cool, damp spots and to keep internal temps of the hive up... seems the virus can not replicate over 20° C.

what to do and what not to do???

the 'special' article posted by the ABJ and authored by Jim Fischer gave one or two direct suggestion on what to do and what not to do to encourage this problem.  as cam states high humidity and temperature are two of the primary considerations.
