Our American foulbrood (AFB) testing kit is the best way to find out if your honey bee larvae are infected. AFB is the most serious bacterial disease of honey bee brood, so if you see signs, such as the larvae turning a chocolate-brown color instead of white, you should test your hive as soon as possible. The infection is extremely contagious, and can easily transfer to beekeeping equipment used on the hive, as well as beekeepers’ hands. Our AFB testing kit provides laboratory-level test results in between one and three minutes. Once you’ve completed the test, the kit can be thrown away. If you suspect you have multiple infected hives, you’ll need to buy multiple kits. If your larvae are more of an off-white color rather than brown, they may be infected with European foulbrood (EFB), a similar – but less serious – infection. We also sell European foulbrood testing kits.
