Killer Bee's In Scotland

Alyth to be precise.  210,00 bees to be destroyed after killer disease found in Alyth
Quote
Beekeepers are being urged to monitor their hives after an outbreak of the killer disease American foulbrood was discovered at an apiaray near Alyth.
The outbreak at the apiary was confirmed following diagnosis by Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture.
The disease kills bee larva by by consuming their tissue.
The  infected hives are being destroyed as there is no permitted treatment for the disease in the UK.
It means around 210,000 honeybees will have to be destroyed.
