Time-lapsed video of my experience with plastic frames. Update 8/9/2018 …. I reintroduced plastic frames this season; I took the multitude of advice and gave the plastic frames a healthy coating of beeswax. The bees drew out the plastic frames beautifully!
This is a series of videos documenting the experiences of an amateur beekeeper starting with my first year and going til??? I'll be posting videos throughout the beekeeping season documenting my progress and experiences. I hope you find them useful and interesting but please realize that I am a beginner hobbyist and you should treat my presentation and ideas as such, especially the first two seasons. Looking back, and as pointed out by the many commentators, I see that I have made many beekeeping errors in my videos! Thanks to my son Alex who encouraged me to keep bees. He studied Colony Collapse Disorder in one of his biology courses at UIC and our discussions piqued my interest in this great hobby.
