Re: Going Treatment Free - step 1
It's easier cos you don't have to "mess with all those chemicals", and it's cheaper.
That idea has definitely been eschewed. But lately, by which I mean the last year or two, things have got a bit more real.
Also, a lot of the more misleading stuff has been said by beginners without much experience. But other beginners still read them and take the message, same as any beginners reading you and assume you must know what you are talking about. So why not believe any other rank nubee?
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
