it's a little trickier if you have bees from other sources mixed in with the ones from that supplier. the supplier could claim your other bees are the source. still, i would be tempted to call and report what your test results showed just to see what kind of response you get. in the end the state inspector may investigate and that may or may not lead to any resolution for you.
call mann lake tomorrow, they have someone who can talk you through what you need to do.
Here's the summary: Veterenarian was more than happy to provide a feed directive, I drove to mann lake and picked up 10 lbs. I discovered that almost every hive was showing some signs of EFB, so I treated all but those that were completely bloodless due to recent swarm, or 1 had zero signs of EFB and extremely healthy brood. I kept that one untreated for now, it also has some honey that is almost capped, another couple of weeks and it'll be ready to harvest.
OVERALL: Most of the colonies look strong, and were only at very early stages of EFB (that is, the brood was JUST beginning to turn yellow and a couple appeared somewhat twisted. There are several that appear to be going broodless, and FUBAR queen cells rotting etc.
I suppose I'm going to have to just keep an eye on those broodless ones with capped queen cells, or recently hatched queen cells and see if they manage to start laying eggs.
