DVD: Natural Beekeeping with Ross Conrad


Price: $24.95
Item Number: DVD105

The various chemicals used in beekeeping have, for the past few decades, held parasitic mites and other major pests at bay. But today chemical resistance is building and evolution threatens to overtake the best that laboratory chemists have to offer. In fact, there is evidence that such allopathic treatments are only making the bees’ problems worse.

In this filmed workshop, noted Vermont beekeeper Ross Conrad flips the script on traditional approaches by proposing a program of selective breeding and natural hive management. The video presents a comprehensive survey of natural beekeeping methods and challenges, including segments filmed in the field. It offers practical information that every aspiring beekeeper needs to know—everything from basic hive equipment to working with your bees to harvesting and processing honey.
