Long story short, I have some old comb and I'm trying to make certain that it's not a dead-out from AFB.
There's old dead capped scattered brood, some of it looks like it was chewed open with nice circular holes.
One thing I see no sign of, no matter how hard I look, is scale at the bottom of any of the uncapped cells.
I do see dead larva scales/dead body parts if I cut open the dead capped brood.
Does AFB ever show up in a dead out with NO SCALE anywhere?
