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.

Small Hive Beetle Podcast and Article

Last night I spent a fun couple of hours listening and participating in a podcast featuring Jerry Freeman's small hive beetle trap. I've used it on my hives and have been impressed. As I said on the podcast, his trap captures a lot of beetles at once and in that way is very effective.

If you'd like to listen to the podcast in its entirety, here it is.

On the WildlifePro network, there is a scheduled once a month beekeeping podcast. I'll go back - it was fun and informative. People could call in and talk or join in "chat" mode and submit questions for Jerry (and occasionally ---- me!!) that way.

I had thought a lot about all the ways I've tried to combat the small hive beetle and decided to try writing an Ehow article to separate my thoughts on each of the traps I've used. You can read it here.

Such a pest the SHB is. I delight every time I kill one and my usual response to ending the life of any creature is not delight!
