Here’s an interesting video on swarm capturing:
And here’s a good video of a queen bee emerging from a queen cell. For some of you who haven’t seen this, it’s pretty good. She emerges finally about 3:29 into the video so you don’t have to sit through the whole thing.
Do you have a favorite beekeeping video you’d like to share? Send a link to: firstname.lastname@example.org
