the bees have came from a bee farmer up north who sold them to two newbies last year as a 5 frame nuc. They have contacted me as one of them had his bees swarmed and needed help collecting them. i had a quick look in the parent hive and saw signs of foulbrood and told the newbie to call our local inspector.
The newbie has decided to kill and burn the bees and frames, rather than risk a chance to have it again.
