Inspections

Inspections

  • Even though your apiary will be inspected from time to time, you should constantly keep an eye open for diseases and pests yourself.

  • If and when serious diseases are found -- especially American foulbrood and European foulbrood -- you should respond quickly and appropriately.

  • Remember, by protecting your own colonies, you also protect those of your fellow beekeepers.
