Treatment-free Beekeeping Conference
Oracle, Arizona, February 26 – 28, 2016
Who should come?

Commercial beekeepers, backyard beekeepers, and urban beekeepers who use a treatment-free approach organized around small-cell or natural-cell-sized bees. People interested in small-cell, treatment-free beekeeping who don’t (yet!) have bees are welcome as well.

“Treatment-free” is defined here as involving:
  • no chemicals added to hives, including antibiotics, essential oils, or pesticides (even ones marketed as “natural” or consisting of compounds derived from plants)
  • no artificial feeds such as sugar or high-fructose corn syrup

Beyond these central practices, beekeepers in this community use a variety of hive types and management activities to keep healthy colonies, the diversity of which makes for lively and informative discussions at the conference (and in the Yahoo discussion group).

einen schönen Tag
