As Beekeepers today we may feel that we are in a similar situation. Colony management that was previously successful may no long work! Unexpected losses of colonies have been eating up our profit margin. We’ve been making increase like crazy each spring, only see some fail to build, or crash during fall or winter. A magical circle without end and final destination. It is always easy to blame the pesticides and other agricultural activates as the only reason for the bee decline and dye outs in our apiary. Is there anything else ?
Macedonian Honey was founded in the certainty that there can be a better future for the honeybees. At this time, with Colony Collapse Disorder and a host of illnesses, mites and beetles undermining the bees' health and endangering their survival, we have to think of them as patients in the emergency room – and we must start by asking the right questions. Instead of focusing on how much honey we can get from the bees we must ask what can be done to protect, strengthen and heal them. At Macedonian Honey we do not focus on viruses, bacteria, fungi – these are usually the symptoms of a deeper problem and only take over when an organism is weakened.
