Beekeeping Equipment

My name is Eliese Watson from ABC Bees and I wanted to give you a warm welcome to the first of our three part series Orientation to Hobby Beekeeping. This is a really comprehensive online training program for people just getting started out, or thinking of getting honey bees.

 

I am going to show you all the different components to starting a beehive including beekeeping tools and equipment, what to expect when buying bees, as well as where the ideal place is to place your beehive. 

 

When you finish video one, you will know all about the following products:

  • Smoker
  • Bee Brush
  • Veils, Suits and Jackets
  • Hive tool
  • Landing boards, bottom boards
  • Langstroth boxes: deep, medium and shallow
  • Inner cover
  • Frames
  • Foundation: white vs black and foundationless
  • Telescoping lid

We will guide you on answering the following questions:

  • How much equipment do you need?
  • What is my budget?
  • How much does all of this cost?

Now before we get started, in order for you to get the most out of this program, I highly recommend downloading the Orientation to Hobby Beekeeping Tool Kit. It is completely free and it is a great tool to help you solidify your understanding of beekeeping equipment, bee purchases, and hive placement.

I also want to let you know is that if you enjoy this course, and you feel prepared to start beekeeping, we have a 5 week online beekeeping course starting in February

 

Our Level One Beekeeping Course is one of the most comprehensive beekeeping courses for beginners online, and in person. Because this course is run online, this means you can learn from ABC Bees where you live, no travel required. If the snow flies in winter where you live, it’s the course for you.
