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.

The mission

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 in the bee-loving capital of North Dakota. She 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 also has a team of two assistants who are also passionate about beekeeping. We teach you how to be a better beekeeper, from the basics through to more advanced topics.

Hear more from the team by listening to the Beekeeping Buzz Podcast, by Bee Professor.
