I guess I didn't concider EFB but, yeah...that makes more sense. Finsky, I know AFB does not cause defformed wings in honeybees, I realise that that is caused by varroa paricitation. I suppose I got a little over-excited when I noticed a populous colony now having about half it's population, some defformed/ dead brood and no larvae. Now that I've read up on some info I realise I was too quick to think that the cause was AFB. Now, after letting the case "simmer-down" I realise that it is probably a few minor stress-related diseases. Oh, and, about one medium super, which WAS full of rippening honey is now filled with cleanly polished empty cells...the bees really tank-up! I'm just a little P-ed off that now I'm gonna miss the honeyflow that started just about a week and a half ago. Good news is that I saw eggs so, over the comming week I'll see if all begins to return to normal.
