I’m back in Canada after a week in Europe. It’s cooler here (21C today) than Hungary’s 39C. It’s been much too dry on the western Canadian prairies – that’s probably going to hurt the honey crop and maybe even the millions of acres of wheat, lentils, and canola in our area. It’s already August, so perhaps grains will fill out as they should, but beekeepers who were hoping for a late season nectar flow might be disappointed.

Beekeeping can be a full time profession or an easy hobby. Yet, more often than not, what started as a hobby would turn into a profession. But you cannot just tell and determine yourself you will begin to do beekeeping. You need to have understanding and satisfactory knowledge on the field that you’re going to enter before beginning on any avocation or profession. If you really have been putting off your curiosity about beekeeping for quite a while, then it’s about time to indulge yourself in your line of interest. Bee farming may look easy; by learning the fundamental beekeeping lessons, you can be got away to a great start.
What does a beekeeper must know?
On beekeeping to start at the right foot first, you should have interest that is total. You should have also consented to share your home space. There are potential risks in beekeeping that can hurt you but your family too. Your focus is not just to earn money by selling honey; a good beekeeper should have a keen interest and fire in rearing bees.
An apiarist should know the right place for the beehives. The area must have adequate sources of nectar for the bees to get. You have to make sure beekeeping is allowed in your area, if you decide to set your beehives at your backyard. There are several areas confined to beekeeping; you have to get permission concerning this.
Beekeepers must understand whether beekeeping supplies can be found in the place where the beehives are situated. When you must visit a nearby beekeeping store you may never know; it is best that a nearby beekeeping shop is not inaccessible.
Protective tools and equipment can also be essential for beekeepers to understand. Understand the right type of suit to choose to keep you from any potential danger in beekeeping.
Last but definitely not the least, among the beekeeping lessons you have to know is that: it’s not unimportant for the beekeeper to understand the appropriate manner of picking honey. All the efforts that are beekeeping would be useless if you are incapable to harvest honey from your bees. The methods should be known by a beekeeper in collecting the honey from your comb; beeswax is also part of the returns in beekeeping.
