Combs infected withBacillus larvae White can be economically sterilized. The solution of alcohol and formalin can be satisfactorily replaced by a much cheaper solution of Water, Soap, and Formalin. The sterilization is easily accomplished by the removal of the honey and immersing the combs in the formalin solution for 48 hours, after which they are aired and ready for further use in the colonies.
