EUROPEAN FOULBROOD

European Foulbrood is another bacterium that can destroy a hive and can appear in spring and early summer. However, brood killed by European Foulbrood doesn’t take on the gluey consistency associated with American Foulbrood.

TREATMENT

European Foulbrood will sometimes disappear during a strong nectar flow. If it continues to peroidically return, requeen the hive. This will give the hive time to clear out the infected brood.
