Last year, hives had EFB - treated, it was 100% eradicated.
I know there's beekeepers out there who'll quarantine equipment for 2 years as a precaution, but I don't see the point in doing that. Why? My neighbor had EFB deadouts that he literally just left there to get robbed out last year, so I'm confident there's going to be more EFB coming into my apiary from his hives this spring.
Is there a "good time" to pro-actively apply Terra-pro for EFB treatment? Should I do it now, long before the first honey harvest, or wait until later in the season?
