    Default Treating EFB infected frames with heat

    120 degrees Fahrenheit for 24 hours is supposed to disinfect nosema on combs. Does anyone know if this treatment will kill efb as well?

    If you 100% sure it is EFB you can treat it with heat, but you need 70 C and up for at least 1 hour. Only a lab test can tell you 100% it is EFB or not.
