If you watched the videos for that article, it turned out that one of my hives had gotten extremely aggressive, and I'm sure it turned a lot of people off to beekeeping. In this video I am rewinding to the beginning, where most people start, by "installing" package bees into a brood box. As you can see, I am bare armed in the video, and up until I discovered that one of my hives had become aggressive, I had worked my bees exclusively with bare arms. And that includes removing frames and extracting honey.

It was at the Sportsman's Guide. Other sporting goods retailers were price gouging and SG was selling that mag for what was at the time less than suggested retail price. I thought it was pretty cool. These days that mag is even $50 cheaper, but that isn't the point of this article. I'm on the SG mailing list now, and just sitting around today I opened their current flyer and found a few prepping products that I have actually reviewed, at really low prices, and a couple I haven't, but that I know are also really great deals. I'm going to be light on this column for a few weeks because my kids are out of school for Passover, so I figured I would just share this information, and give you my coupon code. ;)
