Everything you need to know to become a beekeeper
Anybody Can Become A Beekeeper
It makes no difference if you are a man, woman, or younger child, or a person with a handicap you can become a beekeeper, whether you live in the Big City, the Suburbs, or out in the countryside !
Honeybees are a joy to keep in the backyard simply for their buzzing presence and, on hot days, the smell of honey, wafting through the air within ten feet of the hive. They increase pollination in your yard and therefore increase your yields from fruit trees and vegetables. You may also harvest honey (gallons per year), beeswax, pollen, and propolis from the hive. Your own honey will provide you a tasty treat for your home table as well as a gift for relatives, friends or neighbors. I never knew of anyone to turn down a free jar of honey !
Some people develop beekeeping into a profitable sideline providing themselves with some extra supplemental income.
Beekeeping can provide you with a lifetime interest that will keep you learning something new everyday, as well as providing you with many pleasurable moments of relief from the daily stresses of living and working.
