It cant be any worse than buying bees every year because the "over the counter" bees dont make it.
And who would be on that no treatment list? Are they willing to let you put a lie detector machine in front of everyone involved in the operation when you ask about "no treatments? How long is "surviving on their own?" 3 months, ! year, 2 years? Forever like the old days? Is this for mites, viruses, Afb? Efb?
