Project CleanHive report - AFB project - Project CleanHive Summary 2018 - 2021

Following on from discussion of AFB, attached is the report on Project CleanHive by the Southern beekeeper discussion group and led by Marie Casey and John Scandrett.
One piece that may be of interest to beeks is the case report within, on page 15

Some of this has been discussed in earlier threads that contain articles published at the time on what is now called the Foster method for AFB detection.

It was very positively received.
There was a little confusion about the composite testing, in that the report refers to 12-20 samples, yet your kit contains 4. A detail I should have clarified while we were chatting.
It was helped also by a local AP2 having just used a kit, but unfortunately had just returned it so the result was unknown.

Well, for a hive or two the lab sends out 4 swabs and tubes. . . and more recently 12. But for commercial beekeepers, the lab sends out 40, 140 or 1,200 ! So really its just the number of hives you want to check
