Group Description

Welcome! Here we can discuss the exciting potentials that exist for beekeeping in feral and untreated survivor honeybee colonies. The list is intended for beekeepers that 'do not use treatments' on their bees OR working towards ending treatments. The purpose of the Feral Bee Project is to organize a group of beekeepers who have a an interest in sustainable beekeeping, and wish to encourage only the fittest honeybees that will thrive without treatments, and be productive for the beekeeper. Here we discuss and develop strategies and methods for the purpose of collecting, assessing and integrating feral honeybee stock into your apiaries. Also for discussion of more natural type breeding methods that beekeepers can employ to promote the highest genetic variability and productivity. Discussion topics may include anything about feral bees or any honeybee biology topic. Members are welcome to use the list to discuss exchanging or purchasing queens provided they are of feral type or untreated survivor stock.
