    i’ve learned from a beekeeper – viewer that you remove one of the outer frames first so there is room then to pull out the inner frames without damaging the queen.

    The´╗┐ Queen is generally on the frames in the center of the hive. You remove a frame from the outside to minimize the chance that you damage the queen while pulling a frame out of the hive. It then gives you room to separate the remaining frames before removing them.

    You ALWAYS start with a pulling a frame NEXT TO EITHER WALL of the hive. Ask your teacher who wrote ”Beekeeping For Dummies”. :)

    I really enjoy all of your videos. How do you make time to do all of this? It looks like you have a fairly relaxed lifestyle. I’m jealous! lol!

    the serrated bread knife works quite well.

    you can only start beekeeping in the spring, but you must order your hives and bees in the winter before, and start reading up on how to do it all. we’ll be posting a few more videos on Beginning Beekeeping

    I’ve always wanted to try bee keeping, your sooooo tempting me, lol. Is there any certain time of the year that is better to start?

    As for the knife, I wonder if a putty knife would work better. You would still have to heat it, but cheaper than $80 and would likely fit better in the frame for you.

    i think many people confuse honeybees with yellow jackets, who are very aggressive and sting a lot. honeybees only sting when their hive is threatened. opening their hive is a threat to them, hence i get stung sometimes. thx for watching, eric.
