Yes. I have read both on here and in books that it does. It is of no harm to humans, but can spread to other bees if you feed it back to a different hive. Also, of course, it affects your yield if the hive is dying off.

Just wondering if AFB effects the honey in your hives.
It has no effect on the honey itself. It has effects on the brood that that honey may be fed to. It will kill them.

Why do you ask? Are you one of those who are effected by the outbreak of AFB in TN?
