The health of one of the colonies giving cause for concern, the Seasonal Bee Inspector Isaac Mullane inspected all colonies on the Apiary. EFB was confirmed in colony 12, part of a double queen colony with colony 11. Both colonies were destroyed and the equipment thoroughly cleaned. Shook Swarms were recommended for the remaining colonies. The Apiary was put under a 6 week lockdown with nothing moved from the site and only the Apiary Custodians able to attend the hives.
