Happy Thanksgiving!
50% off Online Courses
Starting Now!!

Sheri and I would like to thank the wonderful friends of our business for your continued support and loyalty through this very trying year of 2020. Sheri and I hope that you and your family are healthy and safe.

So many of our great customers have continued to support our family bee business throughout 2020 and we are so thankful. We are still here helping beekeepers around the country. What helped us stay afloat was the outpouring of appreciation shown for our online beekeeping courses. When COVID19 started we took our Online Beekeeping Courses down to 50% off so that we could help mend the gap between new beekeepers and classroom training that was not allowed due to the virus. Our online courses were enjoyed by beekeepers throughout the US. Now, once again, all of our Online Beekeeping Courses are now 50% off through Cyber Monday.

  • With the pandemic not letting up, you will not likely be able to take a beekeeping class at a club or college this winter or spring.
  • Enjoy our courses from the safety and comfort of your home.
  • Our Online Courses are private, not a zoom meeting.
  • Watch the course videos whenever you want.
  • Courses are yours forever, so spend the winter soaking up all the knowledge you can to help be prepared this spring.

As local beekeeping classes have been canceled around the country, our ONLINE COURSES will give beekeepers the knowledge they are seeking. We've had our classes online for several years with students telling us how much they enjoy and appreciate our online courses.

David and Sheri Burns have written a comprehensive guide to getting started in beekeeping in an easygoing style that is chock-full of accurate and up-to-date information. If you’re thinking of keeping bees in your backyard or on the roof of your apartment building, or even if you already have a hive or two, this will be a very useful book for you.” ―Gene E.

Feeding Bees In The Winter: Inspecting A Winter Bee Kind
Why Bees Die In The Winter

Varroa Mites Spreading Viruses
-Keep your mite levels down all year long to control winter viruses.

Lack of Resources
-Our Winter-Bee-Kind is a great way to ensure your bees do not run out of resources during winter.

Lack of Bees of Winter Physiology
-Bees of winter physiology live 4-6 months giving your bees the population they need to stay warm throughout the winter, and be strong in the spring.

Poor Queen/Lack of Adequate Population
-Inspect your hive every 2 weeks in the spring and summer to ensure you have a strong laying queen. If not, replace her.

Too Much Moisture
-Condensation can develop inside the hive in the winter. Use a Winter-Bee-Kind to absorb the moisture.

-Monitor your hive in the spring and summer for any signs of diseases.
