Michael Bush is one of the leading proponents of treatment free beekeeping.  He has had an eclectic set of careers from printing and graphic arts to construction to computer programming and a few more in between.  Currently he is working in computers.  He has been keeping bees since the mid 70's, usually from two to seven hives up until the year 2000.  Varroa forced more experimentation which required more hives, and the number has grown steadily over the years from then.  By 2008 it was about 200 hives.  He is active on many of the Beekeeping forums with last count at about 50,000 posts between all of them.  He has a website on beekeeping at www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm.  Come hear Michael speak about getting your bees through the winter.  There will be a chance to purchase his books(cash or check), also.
