Dean Stiglitz and Laurie Herboldsheimer are both expert beekeepers and the owners of Golden Rule Honey, LLC. They run beekeeping conferences and write for beekeeping magazines and other industry journals.
When we learn to live by creating a better world rather than using up the one we have, keeping bees without treatments will be easy. Until that time, methods like those that Dean and Laurie describe are necessary, and worth every bit of struggle. It's the best way. -- Kirk Webster, Vermont Beekeeper
