The single-use Vita American foulbrood (AFB) Diagnostic Test Kit enables beekeepers and bee inspectors to test for AFB in honeybee larvae and pupae and to obtain the results immediately and easily in the apiary.
The test can be done in the apiary using the suspected brood that is diseased. The test kit is great to have on hand if you suspect American foul brood. We have a separate test kit available to detect European Foul Brood.
These inexpensive kits can help beekeepers understand how to respond to a sick hive and to understand if equipment and bees should be destroyed or can be fixed easily.
