beginning beekeeping video, one worth
noting! Ed Mabesoone, producer, writer and on-camera
person, puts together information he couldn't find when he was
first starting, and did a pretty good job.
almost two hours covers building equipment (boxes, frames and
the like); colony inspection; checking for Varroa mites;
diseases (using slides); industry resources and finishes with
a good extraction video.
strength of this tape over others I've seen (and I've seen most
of them) is the detail in which most things are shown and explained.
The use of each piece of equipment is explained and shown in
use. The Varroa and nosema field tests are excellent, and even
though slides are used, disease diagnosis is well explained
strongest part of the tape is the emphasis on maintaining bee
space, a concept few beginners understand - until they violate
it, and the burr and brace comb that results when there's too
much space is well demonstrated."
"The Introduction To Beekeeping Video is easily worth the price, especially for a beginner,
and definitely for a club helping out new members!" ... Kim Flottum, Editor of Bee Culture Magazine
