my best colony has a case of EFB, and I'm wondering what to do.
Normally in my area, we check colonies in spring and do a shook swarm if they have EFB, but, it is the 'summerhole' and so, they have only a few resources available to rebuild their nest. I'm somewhat reluctant to just take it all from them, since I can't put foundation back for them.
Do I just burn the nest and feed them with syrup so they can rebuild? Or, is it better to treat at this stage with medicines to tie them over, and then to take their nest in spring?
many thanks for any advice,
