Re: New beekeeper seeking some info on treatment free
Research. Especially suggestions you plan on implementing. There are a lot of very knowledgeable people with a lot of experience on beesource; however, that's a double edged sword. There's a lot of people on beesource with really, really good intentions that offer advice based on something they heard or think sounds good but present it as, 'well what we've always done...'. There's a difference between something that sounds good in theory and something that works in practice. If you come across a piece of advice that seems controversial, there's a reason for it. No one disputes the fact that genetic resistance to disease is a corner stone in the keeping of treatment free bees; however, bring up something that many people disagree on and it's easy to get lost and frustrated.
