    Michael Palmer... Keeping bees in frozen North America

    Mike is a very good speaker and has good insight into bee behaviour. By watching this video it is obvious to me that he has been keeping bees for many decades, and that he pays close attention to the bees. This video shows how he keeps bees and why, throughout the year's seasons up in Vermont.

    My package hive from this spring starved out cluster was not as big as it should have been. ...The 2 nucs I made from the same package via Mike Palmers videos were flying yesterday and hopefully clustered tight as I write this (10 *f +/-) tonight. I think MP has the right take on keeping your apiary running at minimal cost and creating a vibrant stock suited to the climate you live in.

    I liked the video as well. I am still left wondering what to do because I do not want to raise my own queens below the AHB line. I plan to work with nucs this year but will continue to use store bought queens. Hopefully summer queens will be of better quality than the spring packaged ones.

    Do what beekeepers have been doing for millennia, select for good behavior.
