My First Experience with the bees ...


My First Experience with the bees ...



You can watch the video of my first day of bee keeping.


These video shows how to transform a NUC to a beehive.


Please watch how the Queen separator is placed in the video. Should be parallel with the borads.


You can hear my voice as well ;)
