Beekeeping, like every other action, has its dos and don’ts. Start beekeeping normally involves the needed equipment and buying bees. However, some people who are beginning this avocation normally make a few blunders. It’s ok to make mistakes, which post can help new beekeepers avoid making the same mistakes others have before.
Here are three errors which every beekeeper should avert:
1. Not knowing the best time to start a beekeeping business or hobby can end up being a catastrophe. It can lead to some lack of your bees and money. Since most bees die during the winter, winter is the worst possible time to begin. This would induce a beekeeper to buy a brand new batch of bees, which would be more expensive money. Autumn is another inferior time since you will find fewer blooms, hence a smaller quantity of honey harvested, to start beekeeping. The best time to start beekeeping is during summer, which can be the time of the year where there are plenty of blooms that are blooming.
2. Buying used equipment and old books on beekeeping. This really is a familiar error made by many beginning beekeepers. It is clear that one would want to conserve money as much as possible, but buying used equipment and old beekeeping books isn’t a good idea. First, used equipment can come with “inherited” difficulties. The extractor outlet might have a flow, or the uncapping knife mightn’t be sharp enough to uncap all the wax in one go. This would certainly impact the quality of one’s honey, which will ben’t an ideal scenario especially if a beekeeper is intending to begin a honey-selling business. Second, information that is outdated can be provided by old books on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the traditional method when there are better and faster ways to keep beehives and production honey.
3. Refraining from purchasing protective gear. Think about this. He/she will come out as a pincushion with all the bee stingers stuck to their body, if one doesn’t wear protective gear when handling the hives and accumulating the honeycombs. Protective gear is pricey, yes, but it is going to help beekeepers avert having to pay medical bills from all the bee stings.
These three blunders have been presented here to help future beekeepers avoid them. It’s best to consult with a professional beekeeper before getting started beekeeping. If purchasing a certain thing appears overly high-priced, constantly consider the ending price (if they do not buy this thing now, will it cost them more later on?). Ultimately, it’s up to the person to determine the best plan of action.
