Purchase Les Crowder's Book - http://goo.gl/DFGs2p SUBSCRIBE to our Channel HERE ▶ http://full.sc/MRAY21 Become a HONEYLOVER!! ▶ http://honeylove.org/membership/ Top bar beekeeping expert and author Les Crowder sat down with HoneyLove President & Co-Founder Rob McFarland at the 2014 California State Beekeepers Association Conference in Valencia, CA to discuss his life as a beekeeper, his advice for beekeepers at every level, how urban beekeepers can help the situation for bees, his experience's beekeeping in Jamaica, and of course his embrace of the top bar beehive. Les Crowder is a top bar, treatment-free beekeeper from New Mexico. Les has been keeping bees since he was 15 years old, and offers his readers over 40 years of observations and insights about honey bees. Les works to bring the lessons he has learned to the growing number of beekeepers who have embraced alternative methods and a new way forward. Careful not to alienate any members of the beekeeping community, Les emphasizes that his approach is not always the best fit for all beekeepers and shouldn't be seen as such. Rather than focusing on what we do differently and framing it as a 'versus' relationship, Les urges all beekeepers to work together for better solutions. HoneyLove.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit conservation organization with a mission to protect the honeybees and inspire and educate urban beekeepers.

Amazing. Very smart man. One of the smartest men I've heard, not just in bee keeping but in life itself. My idol. I wish the whole world thought like that.

I am just starting out, I built four top bars out of scrap lumber I like your way of thinking keep posting. Question My first hives top bar is only 13" long, is that ok?
James (1 год назад)
Susan wells I don't know if you have gotten an answer yet. I'm sure you have by now. I believe 13 inches would be too short I wouldn't go less than 15. You would kind of be cramming them in making them more prone to swarm.

What got you into beekeeping? I got my first hives for my garden and it went from there. Now I am doing swarm removals and cut outs

I'm from the North East (NH). What is your experience with using Top Bar hives in colder climates. I can see how they do well in warmer climates.

These videos are great! Very educational. For the next round, could you bring up the audio levels? It's hard to hear the commentary.
