Speaker notes for 60+ Years of Beekeeping. Notes from a presentation in Southeast Alabama. During the past 60 years, somethings have changed while some things are nearly the same. This is a short look at the differences.

Some Comments on the Honey Bee’s Place in the Green Movement (pdf file)
I have posted a pdf file of my presentation, Honey Bees and the Green Movement for the 2012 Auburn University Spring Beekeeping Workshop
Backlighting a confined queen in a mature queen cell
I have posted a short video clip of a back lit mature queen cell at: Candling a Mature Queen Cell. The procedure is occasionally used to be sure a queen is alive and well before the cell is introduced into the colony. In earlier days, a candle was used as the light source. The queen is not harmed by this procedure.
It’s nearly time. February 4, 2012 – the Auburn University Spring Workshop
Even though I have done the Auburn University Spring Beekeeping Workshop for many years, it is still an exciting event for me. A significant amount of planning and work by many people – most of whom never get any credit – will be on display on February 4, 2012. I always look forward to seeing so many passionate beekeepers on one intense day. What is it about beekeeping anyway?
See you there,
Experience with the “MiteZapper”
Anyone with “MiteZapper” experience? Good or bad? I will be using them next spring.
