    Default Treatment free vs natural remedies?

    Hello, everyone in Treatment-Free forum. I am curious to know what you guys mean by treatment free. Do you not treat bees at all? Do you treat them with natural remedies? I am a first year beekeeper and the only treatment I have used so far is to add ProB health to sugar syrup.Do you guys consider ProB Health as medication or treatment free?? I would like to learn the most natural ways, non-chemical, to treat my hives. I understand bees are preparing themselves for winter now and I am thinking what i need to do, as far as medication (preferably natural medication) goes. If you could help me learn what you do for prepping hives for winter, that will be helpful. Thanks!
