I’ll report in more detail later. Here’s a summary of what I learned:
5. Treatment-free management is mainstream and profitable.
4. Collaboration is the key to success.
3. Varroa and apis mellifera are adapting to each other, as they should – a pest that kills its host is not a successful organism.
2. The Western commercial bee is not genetically diverse.
1. We need more farmers, farmers and beekeepers need to work together, and society needs to pay attention to farmers.
