Natural Beekeeping 1/4

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


To help promote his all-natural approach, 40 year beekeeper Jerry Dunbar participated in the creation of this video series demonstrating his practices and the life cycle of a healthy colony of bees. Natural Beekeeping follows his narrative, augmented with HD footage of seasonal and hive behavior. Dunbar also introduces products that can be made from the healthy substances found in the hive – including mead, honey straws, propolis tincture and edible lip balm. Natural Beekeeping is perfect for the classroom, library, or daycare center (kids are mesmerized by the honey bees)… and will broaden the horizons of anyone interested in ecological, health, and nutritional matters. Included: – Beekeeping Intro – Hive Tour – Swarm Removal – Bee Package Installation – Adding a Honey Super – Triangular Bee Escape – Hive Jacker – Harvesting Supers – Honey Extraction – Packing Comb – Fall Feeding and Spring Inspection …and more!


Peaceful Mind says:

With 40yrs of experience you call it a swarm? Why does everyone call a wild colony of bees in a building a swarm? From watching the video I find no evidence that they are a swarm.

What is the name of the cloth being used at 4:30 please?

Kevin ecape1820 says:

interesting, however any one who uses a queen excluder cannot call themselves natural beekeepers, I dont think

SomebodyYouDontKnow says:

There is NOTHING NATURAL about queen excluders. They shorten the lives of bees that have to squeeze through them constantly. It stresses them out.

pauline arsenault says:

Help save the bees and get rewarded in the process! Donate to a local beekeeper and be sent honey with a tube of beeswax lip balm!

audio cutting out :(

Harry Posner says:

Why is the audio cutting at around the 5 minute mark?

Jimmy Fox says:

In one of your videos you used a hive jack to separate the hive bodies. Would you share where you got the device?

Wow I am impressed with your confidence of not needing gloves. I guess when you've been doing it all your life you really know what you doing
