    Anyone ever had any issues with this before? What's the best way to avoid? I did read good hygiene in the hives & tools are great ways (which is what we should be doing anyway).

    Itís in everyoneís interest that any bee disease outbreaks should be flagged up right away. There is nothing about this on the main S B A site yet! Iím signed up to BeeBase and I hope these links to their site are useful.
