Links to Beekeeping Subjects, Methods and Techniques

This index should help visitors quickly find the topic they are looking for. As far as possible, items will be under the most appropriate heading, but there may be instances where a topic may be under two or more headings.

Not all topics will be accessible from here because it is difficult to categorise some, or they may be of a very specialised interest. For a fuller list try the A-Z Index.

These Links are not in any order and are either individual pages or sometimes whole suites of pages.

Dave Cushman before me and myself taking over this website from him have tried to give sound information. We may promote certain aspects of beekeeping, but please do not accept them as 'the definitive standard' - there isn't one. As experienced beekeepers we have formed our opinions and modified our ideas constantly in the light of experience and new thinking. This is through observation and logic, not simply by recycling what is in books, as many do. We freely pass on our knowledge in the hope it will prevent other beekeepers making mistakes.

Please study the material that is here and accept or reject it according to the way it aligns with your own ideas. This is what progress is all about. The more that established thinking is challenged and discussed, the more we will all ultimately know.

Roger Patterson.
