Hi, living in SE Qld Australia apparently chalkbrood is one of the common problems of beekeepers here. I have 3 colonies and they all have some chalkbrood but one has a serious problem,  which whatever I have done did not seem to make any difference(moved the bees into more sun, into a different hive, added ventilation, fed them sugar syrup as they were starving, tried banana and light salt as someone has recommended to me). The queen is less then 1 year old laying heaps but they seem to rear only a fraction of their brood and not really moving forward. They were a leftover cut out bees with an emergency queen from last year, which I boosted with a couple of combs from my other hives. 
My next step is to requeen. My question is: If I requeen, is it going to solve the hive problem or do I have to get rid of the comb and start them again?

The success of this forum will depend on how well it is used. I want to hear your suggestions for improvement, including ideas for new subject categories, I cannot guarantee that they will all be acted on, but I will do my best to ensure that this place becomes maximally useful to beekeepers everywhere.
