Is there any Organic method of controling AFB. I would like to quit using Tylosine. I reguarly Sterilize brood combs with E-beam irradiation and discard old combs. And we seem to keep our rAFB situation in control.
I was wondering if any one is playing with bacterial phages?
Or is there an organic acid that can be used in a live hive to control AFB spores?
