Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for nine years and I began my 10th year of beekeeping in April 2015. Now there are about 1270 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. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a
Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Honey-Bee News

From a post on Beemaster, I have found a marvelous resource for bee news and movies.

It's the Honey-Bee News.

The news articles are presented in an inviting way, with pictures to pique your curiosity. All in all it is a fabulous and useful site. Be sure not only to read the well-stocked list of news items, but also visit the "movies" page and watch the informative and helpful movies that are there.

I believe from clicking on the movie clips that are there, that you can watch the entirety of the program from Nature: The Silence of the Bees.

The page comes from someone in Valdosta, GA. I can't seem to find the name of the generous soul who has put all of this together, but we beekeepers are lucky that he/she has.


  1. how neat that they have an entire site dedicated to bees! I enjoyed looking through it. I'm really starting to think bees are cool :) I've avoided them my whole life because of a very bad allergy but it's nice to learn. They're awesome little creatures!

  2. Hi Linda, my name is Jeff Barnett and I am the editor of www.honeybee-news.com. Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am an active duty officer in the Marine Corps and work on this site in my spare time. I truely love beekeeping and hope to raise queens/packages full time once I retire in about 7 years. I am always looking for constructive feedback to make the site better for all beekeepers. Best of luck in the '09 year.
