Describe three specific practices that many commercial/industrial beekeepers utilize that are diminishing the evolutionary capacity of bees in nature. What are some holistic alternatives to these practices that would better mimic a bee's natural life cycle?. Earth & Marine Sciences

-The way commercial bee keepers treat the queen bee. Commercial bee queens replace the queen with a younger one; Artificial insemination to insert sperm from other drones. This narrows the gene pool; Taking honey away from the hive and filling it with sugar syrup. This diminishes their health, when should be benefiting from their own raw nectar.

-Holistic approaches are against miticides (used to combat mites) and the use of sugar syrups to feed bees. The cycle of the using artificial products is much more costly than the holistic approach
