Another category of beekeeping practice: "Do nothing"



Looks like there is another category of beekeeping practice: Do nothing.

I am fourth year beekeeper, and I do "do nothing":

No hard/soft chemicals, no drugs, no organic acids, no herbs, no sugar powder, no feeding, no plastic/beewax foundation, no cut drones brood out...

Basically, I don't care about the mites, as long as I provide my bees a cozy home that they would find in the wild, I am done. The only thing that goes into my hives is wood.

It works for me, I only lost couple of hives out of 18 hives last winter, I harvested more than 500 lb of honey last year, more than I can eat/distribute/donate...

My bees are happy with me doing nothing...

  1. I really like your way treating bees. That is prety risky but you did okey.Your experience is wanderful.

  2. The techniques of this kind can be effective in beekeeping. However, we still need to pay attention to the prevention of some possible diseases.
