I have to admit that I am biased toward Kirk Webster’s approach to beekeeping and his ideas may not sit well with everyone. He has not written anything for two years and I am very pleased to see something new from him. I heard him speak at a conference in Oregon, summer 2013. His approach has been non-treatment since 2002. It is interesting that in the February 2016 edition of American Bee Journal, you will find an interview article with Dr. Tom Seeley, professor at Cornell University and author of “Honeybee Democracy” where he talks about basically the same thing, feral (survivor) bees, which of course are not treated. If you are interested in reading Kirk Webster’s articles, you can find them all at;
The latest article on “Feral Bees” is the first one listed at the bottom of his website.
