Can AFB be spread by honey extractor? I'd like to make sure before buying the used extractor.

AFB has to make its way back to a hive to be a problem. But typically AFB is in brood frames, and typically, those never go near an extractor.

AFB is bacterial and an extractor can be cleaned and sterilized.
