New Video: No. 19 — Installing Bees for Research Project

We just installed twenty hives as part of our bee breeding research project.

In short, a mite is the leading cause of colony collapse disorder. Unfortunately the standard treatment involves repeated application of chemicals to the hive, some more harmful than others. Beekeepers in Africa, Sweden, Wales, and other locations have been breeding bees that are resistant to the mites without treatments. We’re following their genetic selection methods that involve no specialized equipment or knowledge.
