I am researching the prevalence of AFB in packages of bees as it was well documented last year that this was an issue by Clubs in NSW.
I am interested in hearing from people in NSW and Victoria who purchased packages of bees to start a colony and then had the colony die possibly from AFB, or not as the case may be.
Please post your reply here as that will help to raise awareness of this very real problem and I will arrange to get in contact with you.
Thank you for your time.
