This free download area contains some useful information on how to assemble your new bee equipment, when and how to medicate your bees, and what steps to take when your bees arrive. There is also a Power Point slide presentation that features the history of beekeeping and some facts about bees and beekeeping (you can customize this slide show to create your own presentation). We have also included a mini newsletter that will help you take the right steps as you progress through the season. And for those of you who prefer turning pages to surfing the net, there is even an electronic catalogue that contains product information from bee-commerce.

For those of you who would like to actually turn pages, we offer this electronic catalogue. We do not publish a printed catalogue, as we are continually updating our web site based on customer feedback (such revisions are impractical with a conventional printed catalogue). This "e-brochure" is derived from our current website offerings. We try to keep it as updated as the information on our site, but you should always check the actual web pages for the most up-to-date pricing and product information. You may order online after perusing this catalogue, or call us at (203) 222-2268. You can also reach toll-free by calling 1-800-784-1911.

You can view this Adobe Acrobat file using a free download (Adobe Acrobat Reader) available from www.adobe.com.
