      I found about 50 dessicated brood covered (almost totally) with a black scale
      at the entrance of my hive on Sunday.

      From my reading I suspect it is chalkbrood because they are hard and dry and
      have no odor. I read that bees can't remove AFB larvae from the cells.

      Anyone have any diagnostic help on this?

      Anyone know where to send specimens for testing?
