Re: Treatment Free Commercial Beekeepers?
I fear for the safety of others around our hives constantly. In any given year I can only guess how many incidents we have where friendly folks come near enough to our yards just to chat while we are working them. Many of our locations are located where hunters routinely walk and of course the rancher on a horse or 4 wheeler pass near a yard is just a common occurrence for us. My experience is that oneof the biggest problems with bees like that is they follow you so far away from the yard that you need a huge buffer zone around the yard. Again, it's not the beekeepers I worry about. It seems to be working well for Dee in her locale and I think that is great but for most of the rest of us no thanks.
