    Default Disease??

    I was checking some hives and noticed that some of my larvae looked like the tip of them had been burnt. Is this the beginnings of a serious disease??

    I'm not sure if it is sacbrood because it was only the outermost tips of a few brood that looked like they we burnt on the tips

    It starts at the tips then works it's way thru to the entire larvae. Go check the same frame a few days later you will see the progression of the disease.
