    Great video. As a beginner I am starting my first bee hive. I live in East Tennessee. We have a local beekeepers organization that is helping me get started. Your video has helped me a bunch. Thanks

    OSHA! Why doesn’t OSHA go off themselves like the rest of the fed bureaucrats should do. Let the people produce and keep the fruits of their labor.

    I don’t think OSHA would approve… No belt guards. Beekeepers tend to be frugal (I mean cheap), so why buy when you can rob a junk pile.

    A bunch of US Essex beeks ran into a bunch of English Essex beeks on a bus trip to Canada a few years ago. Always fun to connect across the pond.

    You have a nice apiary and and a nice setup for extracting the honey. I think I will save your webs site if you don’t mind. I used to keep bees as a kid but I gave it up because of the beestings. I don’t like beestings especially from Italian honeybees.

    The audio was cut off in the video, but propolis (another bee product) was also used for band aids. The propolis was dissolved in alcohol and then painted onto the wound. No doubt the alcohol played a big part, but the propolis provided adhesion and bonding as well as antiseptic properties.

    Loved your video. I also have a small operation with twenty five hives. I like your double garage set up.

    Check out my videos of my beeyard.

    thats so cool that you said they used the honey as bandages in the old days, but guess what i was reading the newspapaer and doctors are going to use it again because it has so much nutrients. thats funny we forgot the past and found it again. thanks for the information and videos.
