  1. Bee Forum
    Hi there! I am looking to start an apiary at my school, Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. We are located very close to Mankato. I was wondering if anyone in the area or even online is willing to be a sort of mentor for this process? We have never had bees on campus before, and...
  2. The Practical Beekeeper
    I call this my "Tom Sawyer" bee camp. What I want is for you to come and do my bee work and pay me for it. But, of course I hope you get to learn a lot about how I keep bees in the process. Seriously it is how I hope to get somewhat caught up on bee work while teaching at the same time. For...

    First of all, please excuse my ignorance if I use wrong bee keeping terms. I really will try not to embarrass myself, although it will be hard. We received a small swarm of bees back on June 8th of this year. They had been in a nuc box for 2 weeks prior to us receiving them. The comb they had...

    When I tracked down this book, I was looking for "The Hopkins Method of Queen Rearing" in Hopkin's own words. When I found it and read it, I found so much more. Hopkins was a very practical beekeeper, and not just an academic beekeeper. The Australasian Bee Manual was probably the most...

    Hey Beeks! I've been keeping bees for close to a decade now. When I first started I followed all the rules, did all the recommended treatments and whatnot. These days I'm very passive in my maintenance. I seldom treat or tear down unless I identify an issue and I don't do preventative...

    Hello As yet no bees, but a friend asked me if I could build her a Nuc hive as I have a table saw and router. I've purchased a couple of the 'Dummies' books, ie: Building Beehives and the other was Beekeeping for Dummies. Strangely I'm halfway through the 'Beekeeping' book as its really...
