Just a thought, but would there be any value in a thread where we monitor any adverse effects on our colony,s and considered cause. Perhaps a table type presentation, something like;

Larve dumped outside colony - OSR just going over - ssprayed with X

just thought it might help us to put some kind of perspective on things.

Perhaps its already been / being done. Maybe others could suggest how we could do it in a more organised manner. We may need to include stuff like any hive treatments etc... Over to you guys, Buzz

Personally I think there are too many variables.

Larve dumped outside colony

Damn cold night, chilled brood.

Chilly night, over enthusiastic brood spreading....

two innocent (relatively speaking) reasons.

A flow path type table could end up with most of the beginners convinced they have spray incident, AFB and EFB and a serious attack of wax moth all at once.
