Pull that 1 frame out and burn it. Tylan will clear it up much better than terramycin. Terramycin treatment is 4 times 5 days apart for preventive treatment. Tylan is 3 times 7 days apart and it will clear it up but that hive will need to be treated forever(spring and fall every year).

There is no stopping it, only masking the symptoms, it will rear it ugly head over time.

I also vote to burn all. Dig a hole, burn it, bury it.

Now with that said, do you really have AFB? Tell us the symptoms you are seeing.

i dont know if it is afb or efb. i have pin holes in a few brood cells, some fully developed white uncapped pupe, some larve that looks like snot and a pungent oder. i dont like the idea of burning bees and all but if i have to, i have to. i dont know where it come from. i have all new equipment and a hive started from a nuc.
