The Association for Butterflies and the Mississippi State Pathology Department teams up to bring you a fantastic screening co-op at affordable prices.
Farmers are grouped together by the AFB to enable them to send larvae to be screened at an affordable price to Mississippi State. This enables a farmer to discover and address disease issues before disease causes major problems in their stock. The larvae are screened for occluded virus, microsporida, bacteria and OE. It is recommended that larvae be sent for regular screening once a month. Amanda Lawrence, at Mississippi State Pathology Department, will receive the larvae and screen them in the pathology lab.
