The Honeybee Research Centre, at the University of Guelph, is a beekeeping resource worth a visit.
Besides conducting research, they’ve created a Video Library second to none.
Those videos show much of the nuance and art of beekeeping that’s 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 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, huh!
Thanks UoG bee guys.
