The club has many videos on the website for viewing.  If you look under the "Information Center" menu at the top of the web page, you'll see a drop down menu appear for the video section.  We've got 2 series of videos and an area for general videos and how to's.  One series that is really good is the one done by Dr. Thomas Seeley.  Dr. Seeley is from the University of Cornel has made 10 videos on bee swarming.  I invite everyone check them out.  If you have problems viewing them, you may have to install a video player called quicktime.  This is a free download and you'll see the link appear above the video screen when it comes up.  If you continue to have issues please e-mail me webmaster@ozarksbeekeepers.org.
