We are part of the Natural Beekeeping Network, which is an informal, international network of beekeepers who take a 'natural' approach to beekeeping, using top bar hives and management strategies that give priority to the bees' way of arranging their nests. Treatments against pests, if used at all, are as natural as possible and no synthetic chemicals are used.
