Let’s Go Beekeeping is a series of practical beekeeping videos that are there to help beekeepers keep, understand, and manage their bees better.
Presented by Roger Patterson, this series of videos draws on half a century of practical beekeeping knowledge. During August 2021, I was fortunate enough to film with Roger in his natural environment down in West Sussex and - between throwing sticks for Rosie - Roger, Martina and myself were able to record lots of footage that I’ve been editing over the winter.
So far, we have 8 videos available on our YouTube channel: Preparing supers for extraction; Removing unwanted food from brood combs; Making up a two frame nuc; Roger’s inspection kit; cold or warm way?; Protecting a queen cell; Assembling national frames and boxes; and, most recently, the Toggle hive strap.
Like all of Roger’s presentations, what you see is what you get, and these un-scripted videos demonstrate the wealth of knowledge that he has. So, as Roger says, “beekeeping is fun”: join us on a journey through the craft of beekeeping.
