BEE EDUCATED! BEE RESPONSIBLE!
If you are interested in keeping honey bees, be sure to educate yourself before making this important commitment. Beekeeping practices are different region to region and include various hive styles, a number of different species to work with and techniques that are specific to your climate. Keeping bees is a decision we make to somewhat domesticate the species. If you choose to do so, please do your homework. Keeping bees is different than allowing a swarm to live in your hollow tree or hanging a mason hive. There is work to be done, pests to maintain and beekeeping is a very hands on and rewarding experience if done correctly. Give the bees the best chance to thrive by educating yourself and others.
