The Good, the Bad, and the Bugly: Recent efforts to simplify a complex bee world

About the Speaker

Anarchy Apiaries is the treatment-free, fly-by-night bee operation started by Sam Comfort, who began raising queens from survivor stock in 2005. We provide/donate mated queen bees, nucs, and package bees, as well as teach beekeepers to do it themselves on their own homesteads while keeping parasite and disease levels down through the bees’ own strengths. We look at the health of the global hive through a trifocal lens: genetics, management, and nutrition.

Anarchy Apiaries runs around 800 hives (a mix of Langstroth, top bar, and modified-Warre “Comfort” hives) up and down the east coast with concentrations of localized gene pools in both the Hudson Valley, NY and south FL. All of our hives are not treated in any way, and once they reach teenager age (ten combs or more), they are cut-off from any supplemental feeding and are not moved. Our queens are raised from 3-4 year old mothers and mated in areas of survivor drone saturation.
