Welcome fellow beekeepers
Being a beekeeper is amazing. Whether you're a hobbyist, a sideliner or a professional pollinator, there simply isn't a greater pleasure than knowing you're caring for an animal that could be the single most important species to human survival. Because of the honey bee's ability to pollinate plants, they provide 1/3 of the food we eat (fruit & veggies), the honey they make has many medicinal uses and the wax they produce is used to make candles and beauty products. I personally can't think of a better way to help my fellow man than by being a beekeeper.
