Researchers in BYU's department of Microbiology and Molecular Biology are researching American Foulbrood (AFB) and specific bacteriophages which can eliminate the bacteria responsible for AFB (Paenibacillus larvae). They constantly need more samples from hives known to be infected with AFB so they can continue to isolate and identify phages which are effective in treating AFB in hives. They accept samples by mail or in person, depending on what is easier for beekeepers. They will even cover the costs of shipping samples and will provide shipping labels if needed. Contact the lab for instructions on submitting samples.
