There are possible risks in beekeeping that can hurt you but your family also. Then you definitely must know the supplies and equipment that you will use for beekeeping, if you decide to let the bees inside your living space.

All the beekeeping attempts would be futile in case you are not able to harvest honey. The procedures should be known by a beekeeper in gathering the honey from the comb; beeswax is also part of the returns in beekeeping.
