Draper's Videos Rental

Educational Videos

This page was last updated on: 01/02/2018

Because technology is changing the way we all watch videos we are selling our our old VHS tapes below. Many of these VHS tapes are not being converted to digital files and will unfortunately be lost to the many new beekeepers that may benefit from them. We have already put all of our remaining VHS tapes on special but if you are interested in a particular tape...make us an offer - we would like to see them used by someone rather than collecting dust.

I am working on converting some of the videos that we own or have received permission to use into digital video. Below are the ones I have done thus far. You can watch the videos for free just by clinking the name of the video. By offering them for free we hope to help educate not only our fellow beekeepers but anyone interested in our amazing friends the honeybees! My plan for the future is to offer as many instructional and educational videos online as we can. Thanks and enjoy...Royal Draper!
