Bearding is often confused with swarming

What's New

I am in the process of moving to New Brunswick, Canada and will not be offering any queens, packages or nucs for the 2019 season.

Here is a link to a Powerpoint on Splitting Hives (pdf) from the talk I give at Cumberland County Beekeepers Association. A club member made a video of the talk. YouTube

Beekeeping in Maine

I have been beekeeping since the 70's and through that time have had many great learning experiences. Beekeeping is something I truly enjoy so when I decided to make a web site my goal was share some of my knowledge. I hope you find the pages on this site useful. Beekeeping has become a popular hobby in my area as with all over the county.
