Beginning Beekeeping: Learning to Install the Nuc Hives – GSB S1 E1

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Espen, The Golden Son Beekeeper, took a road trip to meet with a beekeeper friend of mine. He has been preparing a couple of Nuc hives for us to start our season with. Alvin, the beekeeper, was so full of information! We spent over three hours in his Apiary learning as much as we could. This video was edited down to about twenty minutes and was mostly focused on those things that Espen would need to know for installing his Nuc the next day.

The next Golden Son Beekeeping episode will be of Espen installing his Nuc all on his own. I, Daddykirbs, will take the roll of camera guy :)

Thanks for watching and thank you for your encouragement!

candler,n.c. blueridge mts. I think from what I see here I could have split that hive about 3 times easy and had a good chance they all could have there own queens .

thank you very much for this video. next month i will start to construct my own hive boxes and in spring will aim to start of with 10 colonies. i am fortunate enough to know a beekeeper to help me out but there is a language barrier. So this is really helping me get a head start. i'll be sure to watch the next episodes as well.

Do you have the unedited version on line? I don't care if it is super long.

Good Video Thanks for Sharing


how many hives per acre should there be?? how far does a bee travel from the hive to get the pollen? to profit $1,000, how many hives would I need with average production?? how many hives can a person service total?  i.e. one man, 500 hives! whats the ratio? thanks!
