Beekeeping is not only one of the most enjoyable activities for many people, but also gives them many great rewards.

The first reward is a great yummy reward very useful for health, growth and productivity for all people-that is the honey.

The second reward is a great and very important help for nature by helping pollinating the plants around the gardens in the neighborhood or crop fields for that matter.

Pollination is an important, if not the most important aspect that helps increase the production of vegetables, fruits, crops and so on.

Bees are very hard workers; they spend their short life working hard to bring the nectar into the hives.

Bees have nearly 35-days lifetime. After that, their wings get worn out and they aren't worth anything to their community. That's when they die.

Bees work hard to bring the nectar into the hives to produce honey to their life, and then they store this honey for bad times –when the flowers disappear from the neighboring lands around. 

In some seasons there are lots of flowers for the bees to collect nectar, so the enthused bees produce more than they can ever eat.

Beekeepers harvest loads of honey in this time. And you can always make money selling honey.

Beekeepers use centrifuge equipments (extractors) to remove the honeycombs then they sell off the honey gathered from hives. It's liquid honey.

Beekeepers are able to sell honey in another different form by cutting the honeycomb into pieces! There are a lot of people out there who like to buy honey in the original wax combs - right at their source. 

The honey sold this way isn't ready for use, but for people who want things natural, this is an added attraction.

There are different kinds of colors and flavors the honey comes in.

The colors and flavors of the honey differ according to the different scents present in flowers. In the same way, nectar from different types of flowers smells and taste different.

Also the variation of the soil type can also influence the appearance of your honey and causes variation in taste and smell of the honey.

As for an instance, you can get honey something between white and clear from the nectar of flowers grown in dry or alkali type soil such as flowers of alfalfa, On the other hand, honey that comes from buckwheat is very dark because these flowers grow in soils characterized by acidic .

Honeycomb's quality can also influence the color of the honey, as well as its looks and tastes. Sometimes, the color of the honey is golden, while you can also find red or green.

Beekeeper should learn and know all things affecting his bees and honey produced by them to gain the best profits from this great valuable business.


How to Collect Bee Pollen without being stung ?

Bee hives like as small factories producing many beneficial products for our health and fitness
Bee Pollen is one of the important healthy products you can gain from your bee hives.

Most people don't like the idea of collecting bee pollen or honey because they don't want to get being stung.

How to Collect Bee Pollen safely?

Collecting pollen needs some skills, and a little knowledge, you should know how to collect pollen by the right way to do it safely.

The first thing you should know is about understanding the method by which the bees collect bee pollen before they bring it to their hive.

Bees carefully collect it from the most select flowering plants with their tongues, and they pass it back to a basket on their legs.

The pollen sticks to hairs found on the bees’ legs while bees are going between and around flowers

This means that potentially a bee could hold tons of pollen during the course of their collection! Once they complete their collection, they will then carry it back to their hive. When they do, we have to be clever in making it possible to collect it by our own methods!

Bee Pollen Trap

The easiest way to collect bee pollen without hurting the bees is by making little trap doors that the bees must fly through in order to get to their hive, and as they do, the mesh will capture the pollen .

Thousands of pounds of pollen are collected by bees each year, because they need it in order to survive and to feed off the pollen, while the Queen Bee feeds off of the royal jelly which is also a different substance from honey and pollen.

The bees give us many important products helping us to be healthy.

The bees not produce honey, royal jelly and propolis only but also they make it easy for us to get this pollen from the flowers by doing the hard work by collecting it from flowering plants, otherwise you can imagine it would be quite a tedious process to collect pollen directly from the flowers.

Some bee farmers put little trays below the mesh netting where the pollen can drop off, and all they need to do is take that tray, get the pollen, and then start the process.
