John's Beekeeping Notebook
Here are some of my favorite beekeeping web sites:
For beginning beekeepers, I recommend: Beekeeping for Kentuckians from the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service (even if you don't live in Kentucky!).
Alberta Beekeeping, Pollination, Honey, Bees & Art -- Allen Dick's Canadian site offers well-organized information, pictures and links about commercial beekeeping methods, equipment, pollination, honey, and bees.
Barry Birkey's BeeSource Site -- Construction plans for bee hives, a solar wax melter, honey heater and more.
New Zealand Beekeeping -- Nick Wallingford's nice site on New Zealand beekeeping. Also has a page for sign-up to BEE-L, a beekeeping email listserv.
P-O's Swedish Beekeeping -- A look at P-O's beekeeping operation. Plenty of good ideas and photos!
Texas A&M University's Africanized Bee Site -- A good resource on africanized bees from TAMU's Agriculture Program.
National Honey Board -- Great honey recipes, honey & bee facts, and kid's page.
The Bees Knees -- A good general resource about beekeeping.
My favorite beekeeping equipment supply companies are Brushy Mountain Bee Farm and Mann Lake Limited. Both offer interesting free catalogs, and have provided me with good service in the past. Betterbee is another reputable supplier.
These general beekeeping sites offer more extensive coverage of beekeeping, with plenty of links:
BeeHoo - A worldwide beekeeping directory
Peace Corps -- The toughest job you'll ever love. Peace Corps helps the people of interested countries meet their needs for trained men and women.
Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs -- Stimulates economic growth in developing and emerging world markets, fostering market-oriented, economically viable enterprises where none or few existed before.
Thanks for stopping by my site. If we share a particular interest, I'd like to hear from you.
