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.
