Re: Competition for breeding bees suitable for commrcial operation
Complex, but if you could have different classes corresponding to the severity of efforcts of different kinds abuse handed out by large commercial outfits, not only could you have your competition, you'd find out how 'deep' into the industrial model bees could be taken. You'd also highlight the depth and nature of the correlation between industrial beekeeping and the need to treat. As well as show that backing off some (and how) allowed non-treatment commercial beekeeping.

The race isn't always to the swift, nor the fight to the strong, but that's the way to bet
