Re: treatment free beekeeping - the risks
Have you tried John Kefuss' ideas and how did they work for you?
I think I would have died when I was 12 and not passed on my apendisitis genes. But I didn't. I'm not sure what you are getting at. That people should do that w/ their bees or that they shouldn't?
How does painting the insides of boxes keep SHB out?
What is it in grapefruit leaves that when burned they keep mites down?
Yet you advocate feeding? Seems like knowing how and when to take only enuf honey from your bees would mean not having to feed. Wouldn't that be preferable for a hobby beekeeper?
