Beekeeping philosophy

The honeybee is one of natures most fascinating creatures! How do they know so much? Once you have spent time studying bees you might begin to realize that they are better at what they do than any of us could ever be! When humans intervene to help a bee colony solve a problem, they often create more problems, or problems where there actually were none.

Today, most commercial and hobby beekeepers are loading their hives with medications and chemicals to "help" the bees cope with all of the pests, diseases and stresses that they have been plaguing them for decades.
At Teakwood Organics, we believe in keeping bees a more natural way. We give the bees a home that serves them well, then we let the bees take care of themselves as much as possible. The bees know what they are doing. They've been surviving on their own for millions of years. Survival of the fittest is the natural way and minimal intervention is how strong bee colonies are made.

There are times, however, when some intervention is warranted. At those times, we prefer natural treatments over chemicals. Chemicals will only lead to more problems for bees and beekeepers in the long term. Let us help you have bee colonies that are healthy and happy, naturally.
