    AFB= Bees destroyed by inspector, then a hole is dug & bees + frames put in and burned then filled in, the brood box, floor, supers & crown board all scorched & scraped clean. Job done With EFB its usually different depending on the magnitude of the infection time of year & the beekeepers wishes.

    If you are having problems with OS referencing go to ...www.streetmap.co.uk, there you will be able to find your OS reference. :) When you have found your apiary click ...convert co-ordinates, this will give you the OS ref.

    Best way to sterilise them would be to boil in caustic soda.
