Huw Evans “Electronic monitoring as a tool for better beekeeping and queen breeding”

[…]temperature, humidity, hive weight and apiary weather conditions.

Tony Maggs “Bee Farming with Native/Near Native Bees”

[…]in Great Britain there are several ‘styles’ of beekeepers – beginners, hobbyists and ‘Bee Farmers’.

Queens – an example of collaboration between beekeepers, by Roger Patterson

[…]packages contained queen bees! In total I posted about 40 queens in 6 batches.

Conserving black bees

[…]Others would argue that it is easier and cheaper to import from abroad; after all, some think bees are bees are bees!
