I have been using treated bottom boards for 20 years, but recently
another beekeeper went crazy when he saw them. He said they were
harmful to the bees and disqualified you from an 'organic' honey classification.
Has anyone else had problems, or is this just some more bee-hugger nonsense?
I hate it when stores or people say the word organic honey. They only
way you can state that it is organic is if you have a area that is 25 miles raduis around your hives and know what is planted and cared for on the area. Bees travel and hit numerous places for pollen and nectur.
