Beginning Beekeeping: Installing Two Nuc (Starter) Hives – GSB S1 E2

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


You got to see the day we picked up bees and learned all about how to install the Nuc hives. Now, this day was the test to see if Espen, The Golden Son Beekeeper, learned what he needed to in order to do this on his own.

Experienced beekeepers…. how did he do?

Its nice to see a young man interested in bees. Congrats on your new bee hives. Good job pops for making that happen. Hope you enjoy your bees for years to come.

Fantastic, Espen,  You were so gentle with the frames. It was a good reminder to slow down for me. Best wishes for your future.

The Abled Gardener says:

he did a great job, especially for being in front of the camera. I thought I wanted to have bees, but it really looks like a lot of work.

littleninpo says:

You must be so proud of your son, what a great young man.

Nathan Deneault says:

have a contractor knife, will cut right through it.  Don't try to "cut" with a prybar, will piss those bees off

If you accidentally squish the queen can the hive hatch a new one?

Tracy Bruring says:

Thanks for sharing! This is good. This will show the world that kids too can be beekeepers. After all, they are our future!

Great job Espen. Can't wait to see you collect the honey later on. thanks for the video.

TheItalian Garden says:

im going to do the same exact thing when i get my bee's on the 22nd this month. feeding with those frame feeders just seems like all its going to do is kill bee's no matter how you set it up. Hope you guys have good luck with the hives, and if not both at very lest one hive makes it. =)

Lolita's Garden says:

I sure wish I started with bees when I was 15. Woulda kept me out of so much trouble. You're a good dad, DaddyK.

tstran02 says:

Golden Son, the Russian hybrid colony will have darker bees. I would say about half of the girls will be darker. Good luck!

justlivin says:

Fantastic job! I can't wait to get my nucs tomorrow. +Blake Kirby are those 8 foot 4×4's used for his hive stands?

bluedazz says:

Just want to ask… the metal on top of the hive box; will that reflect heat or will it heat up the box?  When I notice it I just thought of the temperature it may create would be too high.  Great job though.  Take some courage and knowledge to play with bees.  Best of luck.  It seems Espen has a desire for this process.

Marie s says:

Congratulations Golden Son!! What a beautiful journey your on.
