How to do a Bailey frame change for Nosema
If poisoning is suspected email firstname.lastname@example.org. 4-5 people check that email and someone will reply with the sample size needed. In the interim try and put a minimum of 15 gm bees up to a full honey jar amount into the freezer. The sampling is free at the moment and DAFM will screen for the common chemicals. It is not always possoble to identify the source of the poisoning due to the fact that bees have a large foraging range.
