Found my new hero in beekeeping...."Kirkobeeo" from Backwards Beekeepers. Check out Backwards Beekeepers. Great videos, great tips and ideas, and Kirk is quite entertaining. One of my favorite videos is the one where he explains how to crush and strain honey with natural comb...it's called The Honey Harvest.
The second thing I found was this video about the difficulty bee's are having. They visit some beekeepers in some areas you wouldn't expect to find them. Here's the video link...it's called Every Third Bite.

My friends Joe and Michele have two top bars in their yard. They've been beekeeping for a few years and were instrumental in legalizing hives in the City of Louisville. A couple weeks ago, while I was on a business trip to beautiful Cleveland, Joe contacted me about a swarm in his neighborhood. Being in Cleveland I couldn't get it so Joe and Michele captured it and had it in a box. Their plan was to add it to their suspected queenless hive using the newspaper method.
