Intro to Beekeeping - Explore the Hive Video



This is part of our beekeeping class we did in our backyard last Saturday. I just realized it was posted on the KWED YouTube channel. Cool!

Nice! I have one question: Do you buy some kind of special smoker fuel? My dad always just used strips of cedar bark.

Unfortunately, we never had bees that were that gentle.

No special fuel, Alan. We're with you - cedar bark works the best! And fyi Mark replaces the queens every 2 yrs or so to maintain gentle genetics (he gets them all out of state). If he notices aggressiveness, he takes action immediately.
