We need to act before it’s too late.
The decline of bee populations and pollinators is a massive concern for global agriculture and food security. Urban spread, pesticides, climate change, and disease are taking their toll.
Bee Professor was built to help people take action.
It’s gut-wrenching to watch our fuzzy friends struggle, so we built this website to help make a change. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate beekeeping so that it becomes a mainstream hobby. This won’t happen overnight, but we’re not going anywhere.
Every additional beekeeper offers our honey bees a helping hand. Providing them with a safe home, planting bee-friendly gardens, and avoiding harmful chemicals are just a few ways to help.
Bee Professor offers free resources and guides to help beekeepers of all levels operate thriving hives. Best of all, we’re an ad-free website so our visitors enjoy distraction-free reading.
Who we are
Meet the founder
Bee Professor was founded in 2021 by Prudence Wood, an experienced beekeeper and author. She started out in the bee-loving capital of North Dakota, but is now enjoying the bee-friendly climate offered by Texas.
Prudence has kept bees in Langstroth, Warre, and Top Bar hives for 15 years and has also tinkered with Flow Hives and Skeps.
Running a website is time-consuming, so Prudence has a team of assistants who are also passionate about beekeeping. We teach you how to be a better beekeeper, from the basics through to more advanced topics.
The information provided by Bee Professor is broken into three sections.
- Honey Bees: looks at the science and entomology behind honey bees, with a focus on the queen, worker bees, and drones.
- Beekeeping: tips, advice, troubleshooting, and how-to guides on a range of common beekeeping topics.
- Equipment: learn how different beekeeping equipment and tools work and which are the best for your needs.
