Queen Rearing – IWF Documentary


IWF-Queen Rearing

IWF – Queen Rearing Documentary

One of my favorites, this is a fascinating set of videos produced by IWF on the process of honey bee queen rearing.  These videos were very helpful to me when I was trying to grasp the concept of queen rearing.  This is one every beekeeper needs to watch.

Originally in German, the videos have since been translated into English.  The graphics in the video have not been translated but the general idea can be understood.

One of the reasons I really enjoy this documentary is because they show the process of grafting.  To a beginning beekeeper, the process of grafting can be hard to understand.  In the very beginning of the documentary they show how simple grafting can be.  They also show some close ups of the larvae that are at the right stage for grafting which is very helpful.  The documentary also shows how to use the cut cell method, for those that don’t want to graft.  Lots of good information here.
