Great reference source for the beginning beekeeper or persons preparing to start keeping bees. Covers everything from preparing hive equipment through obtaining bees and keeping them healthy. It also has some extras including some useful tools and free apps. The four discs are organized by topic which makes it easier to choose the info you need at the time.

My wife and I became interested in beekeeping approximately a year ago. We began our quest for knowledge on the subject of beekeeping and began reading several books and publications on the subject. Though most printed material was helpful in the theory and the good reasons for keeping bees, we really didn't come across much direct information on actual hands-on and how-to information. Well, I came across this DVD set on Amazon.com and after reading of what the DVD set claimed to offer, I ordered the set. We quickly received the DVD set and immediately put the first disk in the player to get an idea of what the DVD's had to offer in content and quality.
The first noticeable thing about the DVD's was the quality. This DVD set was professionally recorded with high quality video and audio. Next, we noticed this DVD set was constructed for the novice in mind to the more advanced beekeeper. The videos were done with an A to Z attitude. We were shown how and where to begin beekeeping right through to reaping the benefits and harvest of honey and further. "Comprehensive" truly describes this DVD set.
My wife and I had nobody to assist or guide us with our newfound hobby of keeping bees except various lines of script and this wonderful DVD set. We began our hobby and found that we often refreshed our knowledge with the video and verbiage from this DVD set (and still do). If not for this DVD set and it's hands-on approach, I think we may not have gotten to the point that we have with our bees and finally the best tasting honey that has ever existed.... I may be a bit biased...
Thank you to the producer of this DVD set, Thom Carey, for a wonderful tool for a wannabe beekeeper! (And, I'm sure my bees are appreciative as well.)
