“Free AFB pack”
AFB packs are available for every Member. See below how you can secure your pack.
All beekeepers: inspect your hives in October and tell us what you find. The ABA, together with the DPI and others are running a campaign to help beekeepers keep on top of this devastating bee brood disease.
