Bee Keeping

After watching all those youtube videos, I don't think there is a difference between Bee Keeping and Pest Control. Most home owners complain they have to wait months if not years for bee hives to be removed from their premises as the local county informs bee keepers or local farmers where these pests are and they make their way there to collect the hives and bees for their own farms. SO NOW we know!

Bees make both wax and honey in the ratio of 1:10, so beeswax is valuable as it not only smells naturally like honey, it contains propolis and other good stuff that can be made into skincare products.

Bee Keeping is not difficult as long as you have the right tools and outfit to prevent yourself from getting stung by a bee. You need a box with panels for the bees to make their wax and honey on. Use smoke or cherry wood to scare away the bees when collecting their product. Use a spinner to separate honey from wax. As for the good stuff that is manuka honey or royal jelly, that's a trade secret and not available on the web.

If you have a garden, you might want to get in on this, as bees help pollinate plants and flowers to ensure your garden grows. By the way, do check out Alexander McQueen S/S 2013 for bee inspired couture.
