Yesterday Allen the Beekeeper invited my friend Donna and I to his place to help do a hive check and learn about bees.
We also installed a new hive at my place, which is quite exciting.
Those are in the backyard now – I’m looking forward to higher yields on my squash and other bee-pollinated vegetables.
While I was with Allen he let me do some recording, so here’s a free beekeeping lesson from one of the most knowledgeable folks I know:
He covers how to check if a queen is laying, what to do with hive beetles, shows how he joined a feral colony into a brood box and more. Really cool stuff and fascinating if you love bees and want to keep some honey bees in your backyard.
