SACBROOD

Sacbrood is a virus that is not usually a problem since it affects only a small number of brood. The brood dies after its cell is capped and its body takes on a liquidy consistency inside a tough outer skin. There’s no treatment, though requeening can help.

TREATMENT

Hives usually survive, however, the hive may be weakened sufficiently to make it easily attacked by other threats.
