Fire is still the best way to control AFB. In New Zealand where any colony with visible AFB symptoms is burned, the recurring rate is about 2% colonies each year. When burning, dig a hole about 1-2 ft deep (depending the # of hives), put hives in, douse with gasoline or BBQ light fliuid, start fire, then cover with at least 6 inches of dirt. Check with you state law before doing so, because open burning is banned in many states.
