Reviews

  • Natural Beekeeping is about beekeeping via multistory Langstroth beehives with removable frames, the kind seen in corners of fields along our rural highways. Vermont beekeeper Conrad offers viewers a comprehensive treatment of bees and natural methods of beekeeping in classroom lectures augmented with field videos. This guy knows his bees! Conrad presents strategies for combatting colony collapse disorder (CCD), varroa mites, and other bee pests including mice, skunks, and bears. He also demonstrates hive management and overwintering strategies for the ten-frame Langstroth bee box that will convince some viewers to invest in similar hives for their beekeeping efforts. VERDICT These two outstanding videos for those interested in exploring beekeeping were inspired by same-titled print works by the beekeepers and are highly recommended for general audiences.—Library Journal (reviewed with Top-Bar Beekeeping)
  • Midwest Book Review: Natural Beekeeping with Ross Conrad (3 hours 13 min.) is an instructional DVD in which Vermont beekeeper Ross Conrad teaches the viewer about organic and natural means to keep honeybees healthy and free from parasitic mites. Today, the chemicals often used to protect beehives are starting to breed resistance in pests, with the potential to cause increasing harm in the future. Natural Beekeeping offers invaluable alternatives, as well as fundamentals that every beekeeper must learn, such as how hive equipment works, and the basic process of harvesting and processing honey. Natural Beekeeping is a "must-have" for aspiring beekeepers, or anyone simply curious to learn more about the process!
