UPDATE: Those those tuning in for Tom Seeley, after you’ve registered (for free), you can view his conversation here:
The vast majority of the people who read this blog or watch my beekeeping videos are overseas, but I nevertheless always recommend for new beekeepers in Newfoundland to get on the old Twitter box once in a while and type #beekeeping in the search field to find out what’s going on in the world of beekeeping today. You never know what you’ll find.
Today, for instance, I learned that Tom Seeley is giving a presentation at the National Honey Show in a few days.
Prof Tom Seeley is one of our special guests joining us on a Bee Craft Cameo at @nathoneyshow (Oct 22-24) when he describes his latest discovery about the unexpected role of nest-scout bees. #beekeepingadventures #beekeeping #bees #beekeeper #apiarist #nature #honeybees #beehive pic.twitter.com/xRjNMYz8gi

If you don’t know about the National Honey Show, you should. Some of the biggest heavy hitters in the beekeeping world give presentations at the National Honey Show, all of it backed up by years of experience or solid science or both. I’ve devoured these presentations since I found them about 5 years ago. I particularly like Clarence Collison’s presentations, but they have presentations by Mike Palmer, if you can stand his grumpy attitude, Tom Seeley, James Ellis, Heather Mattila, Shona Blair — people who know their stuff.
This year, most of the presentations, it seems, can be attended online FOR FREE. It’s worth checking it out and registering if you can:
This kind of thing may be for people more willing to take a deep dive into beekeeping science, not necessarily the casual beekeeper, and those of us with day jobs might have trouble attending, but I think all the presentations will eventually show up on the NHS’s YouTube channel. So bookmark it and come back to it if you can (I’m always checking the channel for new videos). Like I’ve said many times, the best beekeeping info shouldn’t cost you a thing if you know how to use the Internet. It’s easy.
