For beekeepers

Are you interested in keeping bees?

If you are interested in keeping bees, the best advice is not to rush out and buy a bee hive and all the equipment, but to stop and think carefully. Beekeeping is an enjoyable hobby, but does require a certain commitment. In order to avoid annoying your neighbours it is important that your bees do not swarm, and this requires the beekeeper to look inside his or her hives roughly every seven to ten days during the active season from May to August. This requires a definite commitment of time.
