    If you have terimycin....read the label....read the expiration date. Read the withdrawal times. Read the treatment

    Usually i treat 3x. Once a week...45days before any honey flow treatment should be done...

    Do you have foul brood or are you just treating for the heck of it?

    Pull that 1 frame out and burn it. Tylan will clear it up much better than terramycin. Terramycin treatment is 4 times 5 days apart for preventive treatment. Tylan is 3 times 7 days apart and it will clear it up but that hive will need to be treated forever(spring and fall every year).

    IMO, burn it, you HOPE its only in the one frame

    There is no stopping it, only masking the symptoms, it will rear it ugly head over time.

    I also vote to burn all. Dig a hole, burn it, bury it.

    Now with that said, do you really have AFB? Tell us the symptoms you are seeing.

    Send a sample in and get a official opinion. Otherwise you may be burning a perfectly good hive... unless I got string, scale and smell, I would get an official opinion first.
