Re: Submit your definitions for "Treatment"
Treatment, as it pertains to beekeeping, is anything done to a hive, short of putting bees in it, intended to in any way effect the health or longevity of the colony therein.
Non-treatment would be doing nothing, short of putting a colony of bees in a hive, done to a colony of bees to positively effect the health of or longevity of the colony itself.
