Re: Keys to Treatment Free Beekeeping
All human based agriculture goes against nature. Plowing and planting, monoculture, breeding for traits that contribute to producing food for humans all lead to food on our tables. Beekeeping can't be profitable if we go back to harvesting honey from bee trees.
Can we do a better job? Yes, we can stop breeding mite susceptible bees and we can change our paradigm to one that is sustainable.
