Beekeeping including articles, videos, and products to help you understand beekeeping.

Knowledge about how to keep bees has been traced back nearly 15,000 years and beekeeping is one of the very first forms of food production. Your interest in beginning beekeeping has a long and rich history.

While you may think of beekeeping as just a way of producing honey, a number of other profitable products come from bees. Beeswax is a product used to make candles and some cosmetics. The health food Royal jelly is produced by worker bees and is sought for its extra nutritional benefits. Those involved in alternative medicine often seek propolis which bees produce to seal cracks in their hive. And, beekeepers can be hired to move their hives to provide crop pollination services.

Beekeeping for beginners is a hot topic among many people interested in beekeeping as a hobby and not primarily as a commercial venture. People interested in beginning beekeeping are becoming more common in urban areas as more people see the benefit of bees that help support their urban vegetable gardens. Bees are an important part of the environment and may people are happy that bees are making a comeback.

If you are someone who is not frightened by bees and think they are interesting creatures, then you may be interested in learning about how to keep bees and will want to know more about beekeeping for beginners.

Beginning beekeeping is an important step in getting close to nature and learning more about the environment. Learning how to keep bees is both interesting and challenging.

But, before you jump into creating your bee colonies, you really should learn as much as possible about how to keep bees in a health and safe manner. And, if you live in an urban area, you'll need to work with your neighbors to make sure they won't complain about your new venture.

The Barefoot Beekeeper is a revolutionary book about "sustainable", chemical-free beekeeping, showing how it can be simplified and made accessible to all, including people with disabilities, as with this method there is no heavy lifting involved.

The author strips away all unnecessary complication and confusion, demonstrating that "modern" beekeeping methods are largely to blame for the poor state of health of the honeybee and that the commercialization of beekeeping marked the start of the disease and parasite problems that honeybees have been trying to deal with ever since.

Barefoot Beekeeper.
