Re: waa offered free bee equipment....
If you had done this w/ half of the equipment and not w/ the other half chances are you would have the same results. I doubt that you actually did anything effective to destroy any AFB, which is all one really needs to be concerned w/ in this case.

And now you have inspired someone else to do what you did. Though doing so shouldn't be dangerous, just possibly misleading and unnecessary.
