>Keeping colonies strong doesn't prevent AFB.

Everything I've read would say it does and that weak colonies tend to get AFB.

 Your weak colony could have been exposed to the afb from a strong colony with afb entering the weaker colony.  I have seen this happen. Charlie

What amount of pollen substitute or pollen should I have on hand to jump start an over wintered colony and how much for a new package?  (Natural pollen will probably be available when the pkg arrives.)
