How is Organic Apiculture (Beekeeping) different from conventional, local honey beekeeping?

Local, organic honey cannot be produced in the USA in large, commercially-viable quantities without the use of pesticides due to parasites such as the varroa and tracheal mites. Organic Honey must be sourced from countries where the parasites are not present.  Countries such as Brazil and Mexico support organic apiculture (beekeeping) as a source of commerce where honey production is not a just by-product of agricultural pollination.
