Bee me up, Scotty!
Do you want a crash course in Natural Beekeeping? No, it won’t hurt a bit. (Unlike the bee sting I got last week.) The best way to learn about natural beekeeping is…
(insert drumroll) Use the Force! No, just kidding. There is a better way.
The best way to learn about natural beekeeping is to read and do. Read all you can about it. Read online, read books, and read articles. Then go out and put into practice what you have been learning.
To help you, I have compiled my favorite beekeeping articles into a Natural Beekeeping Article Pack. You can download it here: Natural Beekeeping.
What will you find in this collection?
Nothing but articles on natural beekeeping and the Warre Hive that I have found to be thought provoking and meaningful. Articles that will help you get a better understanding of such things as:
- Minimal Intrusion Beekeeping
- The Principle of Nest Scent and Heat Retention
- Wild bee colonies that have naturally survived varroa mites
- Tips and techniques for natural and sustainable beekeeping
- Even a guide for making your own wax starter strips for the top bars
in your beehive
I have compiled all the best articles into a handy ZIP file. You can download it here: http://warrebeekeeping.com on the natural beekeeping page.
Don’t stop there! Keep reading online, check out books at your local library and browse through great beekeeping sites like http://biobees.com. Always have an open mind ready to learn more about the hive and the honeybee. The more you read, the more you will know.
And every time you have learned something new about natural beekeeping, go out and practice what you have learned. There is no better teacher than personal experience.
As Yoda might say: It is the true beekeeper who knows that the more he learns, the more he discovers how much he has left to learn.
Happy Beekeeping, and may the Force of Learning Be With You!
