Honeybees quarantined after foulbrood outbreak

Local animal health authorities have quarantined honey, honeybees and hives in 17 communities in Zala County because of an outbreak of foulbrood, a destructive disease caused by spore-forming bacteria, local daily Zalai Hírlap reported on Wednesday.

Beekeepers are destroying infected hives as well as their honey, chief veterinarian for the country Endre Kardeván told the paper.

The honey from the infected hives presents no danger for humans and may even be consumed, said local expert Péter Fendrik. (MTI-ECONEWS)
