I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 19th year of beekeeping in April 2024. Now there are more than 1300 posts on this blog.

You can also click on the "label" at the end of a post and all posts with that label will show up. At the very bottom of this page is a list of all the labels I've used.

Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here.Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

The bees arrive!

April 15, 2006: Picked up 2 nucs from PN Williams at 9:00 PM. The nucs were held closed by bungee cords going in each direction. I drove them home and went to the back of the car and opened the van to find that the bees were coming out of the nucs. I carried one of them through the house to the deck and a few bees stayed in the house!. The second one I carried down the kitchen steps, up the deck steps and placed them on the deck. I let the bees calm down for about an hour before removing the screened door. I also before I went to bed, put the Boardman feeders with sugar syrup on the main hive bodies
