(Before It's News)

Cornucopia’s Take: Many beekeepers treat their hives with miticides every year to kill Varroa mites, parasites that feed on developing bees. Some beekeepers suspect that if beekeepers did not treat them, bees would evolve to live with Varroa mites, producing a hardier bee. The interviews in this video begin about 30 seconds in, and offer first-hand accounts from beekeepers who do not treat.
