More History of Beekeeping

This is another in the series of 1930’s beekeeping. No audio but the vision is sufficient to make out the whys and wherefores. What is noticeable is the care and attention that the beekeepers provide both for their hives and for the bees. Perhaps this is what is missing in our commercial striving for high volumes in production. Some have said that C.C.D. (Colony Collapse Disorder ) may be related to the stressing of the bees by our intense farming of hives. It’s an interesting point. Nevertheless, any beekeeper should enjoy watching this film from days gone by.
