yeah, and lets keep it that way. so much pollen this autumn, cleared up any EFB around. No need to use antibiotics there.
I'm trying to get a few natural cell size colonies going. Luckily we don't have varroa, yet. They have it in New Zealand, and all the organic beekeepers have turned to chemical treatments (only one I know of is starting to experiment with a smaller cell size), after severe losses.
When it does arrive here, hopefully I will be ready and won't have to rely on treating with chemicals.
