T's Bees apiary prides itself on working with nature rather than against it. I routinely inspect and evaluate the bees, promoting the strongest over the weakest, and the best in local genetic stock. All hives are treated using organic acids and essential oils found in nature. Integrated pest management is the prevailing method in T's Bees apiary. All of my queens are local and reared by me, and either mated and over-wintered from last year or mated this year.
