Thread: Possible EFB?

    Exclamation Possible EFB?

    Hoping this isn't AFB! I've got some tests coming in but it will be a week.
    The rope matchstick test was not consistent and rarely yielded a short rope.
    Some of the larvae are desiccated in the back of the comb (where they are when healthy) in a moon shape
    Some are on the floor of the comb, off-white/yellow in color
    Others are twisted up towards the entrance.
    Could not find any holes in the caps or overly sunken caps

    EFB.

    AFB larvae die after capping. Cappings are sunken and greasy looking.

    Here is a list of threads on EFB. There should be pictures in some. https://www.beesource.com/forums/sea...rchid=15239373
