  1. The Practical Beekeeper
    It took me a long time to find The Australasian Bee Manual and the first one I found was from 1886. I was searching for it because I wanted to read about the Hopkins Method of queen rearing from Hopkins. Unfortunately the 1886 version did not have the Hopkins method in it. However he did have...
  2. Beekeeping 101
    Hi all. We've been putting together some free videos for beekeepers (beginners to intermediate) and we recently released the first one called Wintering Bees: A Step By Step Beekeeping for Beginner's Guide.

    I just got contacted by someone wanting to see about shipping an extractor from the US to Australia. They said they had not found a local source for them. Can any of you Aussie beeks tell me where I could tell them to look?
