News for Natural Beekeepers in Seattle

Local beekeepers launch interactive website to share experiences on backyard beekeeping with organic methods in Seattle.

PRLog - Oct. 25, 2012 - SEATTLE -- This week marks the launch of the Hands Off Bees website (handsoffbees.blogspot.com) about backyard beekeeping in the Seattle area. The site shares first-hand experiences and resources culled from personal experiences with beekeeping using the Warre hive, a style of beehive which allows honeybees to build their own free-form honeycomb rather than using plastic forms like commercial hives do.

The written content of the Hands Off Bees website is provided by Amanda Laughtland, the editor/publisher of Teeny Tiny Press. Mandy hopes to provide a friendly venue for information to help make backyard beekeeping more accessible and sustainable for people interested in supporting local bee populations.

While no method of beekeeping can promise that beekeepers won't be interacting directly with bees, the Warre hive provides a mostly hands-off beekeeping practice, where the beekeeper leaves the bees alone to do what the bees themselves do best: build comb, gather pollen, make honey, and otherwise support their colony.

Hands Off Bees also offers custom-built, handmade beehives for sale, using natural materials for the well-being of bees and humans alike. These hives are built by Trish Bondurant, a woodworking teacher who has taught traditional methods of woodworking using hand tools to students in Waldorf schools for many years.

Please visit handsoffbees.blogspot.com to join the conversation about helping local bees.
