Since varroa arrived in Europe and America in the 1980s, most beekeepers have found it necessary to treat their colonies with chemicals in order to avoid heavy colony losses. But a minority of beekeepers have managed to care for their colonies without the use of chemicals and have done so with not just tolerable colony losses, but with losses that are sometimes equal to or smaller than the losses of those beekeepers who treat with chemicals. With the help of thirty examples of treatment-free beekeepers in Europe and America, including famous names in varroa-resistant bee breeding, this book documents the encouraging success and growing popularity of beekeeping without chemicals, and details the bee husbandries of the beekeepers presented.

David Heaf was born in 1947 in Liverpool, grew up in Sheffield and obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in biochemistry at the University College of North Wales, Bangor. After a career in research biochemistry he settled in north-west Wales where he works as a translator and, with his wife Pat, manages a large vegetable garden. He started beekeeping in 2003 with National hives. In 2006 he was introduced to the Warré hive, and populated six of them in 2007. He now winters about 10 Warrés and a few frame hives. In 2010, Northern Bee Books published his book on apicentric beekeeping entitled The Bee-friendly Beekeeper (reprinted 2012), and they invited him to write a manual on Natural Beekeeping with the Warré Hive, which was published 2013.
