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.

NE Treatment Free Bee Conference

Well, Julia, Noah, and I spent the day at the conference. We've all learned lots.

Michael Bush was the first speaker. I couldn't believe I was getting to meet him in person. He is such a nice man and as good a speaker as I had imagined.

He spoke on balance in the beehive and the value of no treatment, bee nutrition, and natural comb. 

 We then heard Dean Stiglitz on the value of raising your own queens and I kept feeling inspired to come home and make splits!

 Sam Comfort talked about simplicity of keeping bees and was a delight as he always is. 

 We also heard Erik Osterlund and Kirk Webster I'll post more when I'm with my computer at home and can put up more pictures and info. 

Having a great time! Wish you were here!

  1. Linda,
    I wanted to go to this conference but could not get away. A friend that has about as many hives as you do in Chapel Hill was going to do splits yesterday but did not due to the growth of the hives. I know none of mine are ready either. Got to go look into a failing hive and see if the queen they were making is producing.
