The best defense against varroa is naturally sized bees who are not feed sugar or HFCS. To mimic nature you must develop a strong stock through natural selection, you simply let the weak die and split the strong. Hi Liz,

I keep bees in Southern New Jersey along the coast. I do not feed or treat and have success so far, I am two years into this. Do you treat for varroa at all? James,

I'm guessing that the big pharmaceutical companies are rushing to find the chemical cure for CCD. James Don,

However I’m a bit disappointed in how quickly we are lured into drug or chemical treatments, rather than looking to nature for the answers. COMMENT: This aspect of our modern living... the turning to pharmaceutical answers to everything... when it gets to sipping water for dry mouth or just buy our patented drug as the answer i think it shows we finally hit the extreme degree with this model and way of living. Sort of like the alcoholic that hits the bottom who is co-dependant on a society that is living in denial. I just want to say that many people are offended when someone references the unique collection of books called The Bible. But years ago i was part of a two and half year study of the last book in the collection. An interesting comment was made about the various signs of the times was that in the last days "sorcery" would be worldwide. The word was translated from the original in the King James version from an orginal meaning that was "pharmacopea". The use of drugs back then was more associated with those who practiced sorcery because drugs have always been used to influence and control people, environments, animals, etc. The sorcerers were the ones who had the knowledge of the drugs because they used pharmacopea as a strategy. Even though the book was written two thousand years ago, it is a chilling predictive description of our modern enlightened world where there is now a drug for everything and everyone. No wonder that Someone is going to be needed to step in before we destroy the entire living world! It was our calling to get in harmony with the creation that was provided to us to learn the wonders and joys of the manifold wisdom of God which is EXACTLY what you are doing with the bees. Whether you realize it or not! Thank you for your work on sustainable bee knowledge. I have a strong feeling that all of our problems in this world IF they have a patented drug anywhere in the picture IS the problem! We need to get back to communicating, cooperating and collaborating with they way things are and were intended to be instead of using drugs to try to control and influence people, environments and animals, etc.... When will people open their eyes and see what has become of us? So Bee Colony Collapse is just another modern myth... thank you for explaining that to everyone... i can imagine some drug company now working on a chemical solution to treat the problem they caused with other drugs... That truly seems to be the way of this world! Thanks for listening. Your work is more important than some of the people getting Nobel prizes because you are on the right path, with the right attitude and you are helping others to the right thing too!

I have out it on our facebook page and I wish you that millions read it - of course, beekeepers hate hearing this kind of thing, certainly around here it is astonoshing how much you get attacked as a natural beekeeper by your dear colleagues. lets hope that the truth about the ailing bees will be stronger in the end than our human ignorance and greed.
