Scottish Government: Bee Disease confirmed in Perthshire, 28 May 2020

The American Foulbrood has been found in an Apiary near Blairgowrie.  The disease affects colonies of honeybees and with not treatment available in the UK, the infected hives will be destroyed.

Chief Veterinary Officer for Scotland Sheila Voas said:

“The repeated finding of AFB near Blairgowrie is disappointing and emphasizes the important work of the Scottish Government Bee Health Team. It is a timely reminder that beekeepers should remain vigilant for signs of the disease at all times.
