Being a first poster here, how long have you had bees?
How did you determine it was AFB? What signs did you see?
Did you buy a package of bees and put them on foundation or comb?
Did you buy a nuc? Most infections are bought. Unbeknownst to the seller usually. Or transfered unbeknownst to the beekeeper making the split.
