Just checked some of colonies for fall/winter prep and found 3 with AFB. I always thought of trying the shake onto new equipment method - but no nectar flow. Can I simply use tylosin with the diseased comb and possibly diseased honey? If it were earlier in the year I would attempt this and cull the scaled comb over time. I'm halfway tempted torch the colonies because it seems unlikely they will survive the winter anyhow. Strange thing is the colonies are very strong - loads of bees and brood still - probably robbed some nearby diseased hive.
