Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 18th year of beekeeping in April 2023. 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. 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.

Difficult Bee Landings

Today the bees were falling all over themselves trying to land on the hive entries. For fun I filmed it:

    That's a cool video, thanks for posting it.
    Did you know that the ads at the bottom of your post are for bee exterminators? Do you think they would change that for you?

  2. I wrote to Google adsense and said I didn't want ads for bee exterminators on my site since I am FOR the bees, not for getting rid of the bees. They don't provide a personalized response, but maybe it will have some effect - we'll see.

  3. Wonderful video!

    That's about what my hives look like this week, especially since my hives are surrounded by brush on the sides, and it acts as a natural 'funnel' to direct the bees to their hives.

    Very cool!
