8 Reasons to Start Beekeeping

  1. Honey: Honey is sweet and delicious, and raw honey contains powerful antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes.
  2. Pollination: Flowers, fruit trees, and crops in yourneighborhood won’t grow without pollination, so help them thrive by providing natural pollinators.
  3. Learning Experience: Many things can be learned from bees, and observing the bees comb building, honey making or egg laying can be fascinating.
  4. Inexpensive Hobby: Once you’ve spent the initial, fairly inexpensive investment on beekeeping materials and protective clothing, all that’s needed is your time.
  5. Help Stop Colony Collapse Disorder: Due to the effects of colony collapse disorder (CCD), bees are disappearing. So raising bees and nurturing them helps to increase their numbers.
  6. Stress Relief: Watching your bees’ activities or working with them can help you keep focused and your mind off other things.
  7. Beeswax: Beeswax is a by-product of hives and makes great candles, lip balm, wood polish, and more.
  8. Health: Honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties and the acidity in honey keeps bacteria from growing.
