    BeeSource is a very good Forum. Are there any other BeekKeeper Forums online that are as active or informative? It seems I've found 4 or 5 others, but most are like dead or struggling hives! This forum is very active and the people are great!

    I'm just wondering, with so many beekeepers, why aren't there more forums like BeeSource and if there are, where are they?

    Beesource is the most active forum by quite a bit. There are a few gardening places with a bee forum, but they seem pretty slow and I don't even remember them anymore. There are several beekeeping groups on Yahoo, but most of them are even slower. The organics group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Organicbeekeepers/ is pretty active and very narrow in focus. www.beemaster.com is fairly active.

    I would suggest that you subscribe to the Bee-L mailing list. It's not a "forum" and <gasp> not on the web, but it's the oldest beekeeping electronic information exchange and still a valuable source of information.

    Send an email to listserv@listserv.albany.edu with text (not subject) of "subscribe bee-l Firstname Lastname" [no quotes]

    As far as web-based forums go, my preference would be to have one good one rather than several mediocre ones. I have no desire to visit several places when one meets my needs. And this forum is just about as helpful and informative as I can imagine.

    Its very helpful to have a forum that is local to your region as well.
    "Activity" isn't the sole value of a forum.
    Our board has periods of high and low participation.
    Check out:

    Or our website:

    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.
