Apimondia 2013 October, 201 saw the 43rd International Apiculture Congress
take place in Kiev, Ukraine and over 7000 beekeepers, scientists, apitherapists,
vendors and pollinator enthusiasts descended onto Kiev's giant, awkward
Exhibition Hall. For five days the participants networked, compared notes,
conducted business, sampled honey, presented findings, absorbed science and
milled around the bright, spacious ApiExpo while thinking, speaking and
breathing “bee.” In reporting on this conference William Blomstedt wrote for the
American Bee Journal:
• Generally speaking, poorer beekeepers have healthier bees
than wealthier beekeepers. This, according to Dr. Nicola Bradbear, president of
an Apimondia standing committee, is because the poorer beekeepers do not use
chemicals or antibiotics in their hives, and they often allow swarming and drone
• Later in the conference, keynote speaker, Dr. Tom Seeley
offered some solid research to back up Dr. Bradbear's thoughts.

Bill, Would you mind if I repost this on the SonomaBee list, here in CA?
...Maybe a couple others?
Credit as below and a mention of the Warré list?
I do not at all mind that you repost it. After all, I merely copied it from the
American Bee Journal. My name and website may be mentioned or my name needn't be
mentioned. Thank you for asking. Greetings. -Bill
