Re: treatment free beekeeping - the risks
That's fine, but I have no basis to believe your suspicion is true. If anything, TFB bees would die at a much faster rate than treated bees, at least those that can't deal with the pressure, thus ending any negative influence. Treated hives simply lower the level to a point the bees are not adversely affected but may still be having an affect on the native pollinators. I think unless there has been a good balanced study on this, we're both simply guessing.
