Idiots Guide to Beekeeping
Did you know that beekeeping can be done on your backyard? (check to see if you need a permit), all you need are bees hives. Beekeeping has it's own language that is called "BeeSpeak". Below are a few definitions for some of the more confusing terms.
I know this may sound like similar to ape. An apiarist is another name for a beekeeper.
#2. The Honey Bees
Bees that produce honey. What you probably didn't know though is that only a few bees produce honey and that the honey bee is in the vast minority of bee species.
#3. The Hive Tools
This is the nifty tool that beekeepers use to pry frames out of the bee hives. If you find this a little overpriced, just buy a paint scraper - They both work the same.
This one can be really confusing when starting out The super is the part of the hive that the bees put the honey in. It contains frames. In beekeeping guides you will see instructions to add supers in the spring and fall. (And I was wondering Super what?)
#5. The smoker
In beekeeping this one of the most important tools. Usually a metal pot with bellows attached to it. It dispenses cool smoke that calms the bees. This is a must have tool for a beekeeper. A hive should not have extra bees.
If you are feeling a wee bit overwhelmed at the stuff you have to learn to start understanding honey bees and beekeeping, there's no need to worry because beekeeping is not complicated. You too can get started in successful beekeeping by getting a copy of beekeeping for beginners below.....
