    I'm looking for a definitive answer for my friend (thank God, not for me) and of course, I am getting conflicting information. Hoping you can help: If you have a hive with EFB, can you shake those bees into another hive with no worry? Then what do you you with the box you shake them out of? Does it have to be destroyed? Just the comb? Just the comb and frames? Use Terramycin; don't use Terramycin; kill the queen & shake the bees into an existing hive/kill the whole hive! :confused:

    I'd like to be able to help him but I'm more confused now that when I began researching.

    I trust you guys, so tell me what to do.

    You want a definite answer. Call Don. NC State head bee inspector. He is a great guy and will give you all the correct answers. That is what I do when I'm stumped.
