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.

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.
