Welcome - Explore my Blog

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. Please use the search bar below to search the blog for other posts on a subject in which you are interested. 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.

Special Visitor to my Hives

I spend a lot of time on the Beemaster Forum where I get a lot of my questions answered and have learned a lot from people all over the world. One of my favorite posters is "Understudy." He lives in Florida where he has done a lot of "cut-outs" in which he goes to places where people have found bees and have not wished for the bees to be there. Examples are boats, trailers, inside roof overhangs and most impressively, in a compost pile!

In addition, he travels for his work and has been in Atlanta this week. So he came to my house to see my two little hives and eat lunch. I loved hearing about his bee adventures. He has a blog as well.

To prove he was actually at my house, here he is between my two hives - lucky me - to be entertained and educated by his bee stories over lunch!

  1. Well, he sure gets around. He's farther away from Atlanta than I am.
