This beekeeping course is designed to take you from knowing nothing to knowing all you need to keep honey bees successfully.
The course is presented in a step-by-step sequence so that the knowledge from each lesson builds on the previous lessons. See the course description for an outline of the topics presented.
The information in this course is the result of both painstaking research and over a decade’s experience of immersion in beekeeping, full of beautiful photography and sprinkled with videos.
Unlike a book, this course is kept up to date as new research comes out and knowledge increases. Because the course is privately produced Michael does not have to be politically correct or ignore issues that beginners want to know about. He has constantly striven to present the facts simply and without bias, indifferent to the misinformation that abounds on the web.
Michael is a West Virginia Beekeeper Association (WVBA) master beekeeper. He has served as president of the North Central West Virginia Beekeepers Association (NCWVBA) for six years and worked as an apiary specialist for his state’s department of agriculture. In addition, he has his own beekeeping business and has led pollinator research projects.
