University of Guelph Honeybee Research Center
The Honeybee Research Centre, at the University of Guelph, is a beekeeping resource worth spending time at.
Besides conducting research, they’ve created a Video Library, with more than 3 dozen videos that are second to none.
Those videos show much of the nuance and art of beekeeping that’s so easily lost in text.
And they cover a broad spectrum:
- getting started with bees
- working with bees
- working with queens
- colony management
- abnormal colony conditions
- double nucleus colonies
- queen rearing
- and even bee beards.
They are practical, thorough, novice friendly, and a joy to watch.
For example, here’s a video on how to open a hive:
What do you think? Pretty good, I think!
Thanks UoG bee guys.
