I watched the Rame Peninsula Countryfile programme featuring British ‘black bees’ yesterday. It’s available to watch for five more days (only if you are in the UK though).
The show was keen to play up the romantic side of the Peninsula as Cornwall’s ‘forgotten corner’, a “well-kept secret best reached by boat”. They told us more than once that Mount Edgcumbe, a countryside estate in the Peninsula, was the location of Britain’s first… Read More

Beekeeping, like every other activity, has its own dos and don’ts. Beginning beekeeping normally involves purchasing bees and the equipment that is needed. Nonetheless, some individuals who are beginning this hobby normally make several mistakes. It is okay to make mistakes, which article can help new beekeepers avoid making the same mistakes others have in the past.
Here are three mistakes which every beekeeper should avert:
1. Not understanding the best time to begin hobby or a beekeeping business can end up being a disaster. It often leads to some lack of cash and your bees. Since most bees die during the wintertime winter is the worst possible time to start. This would drive a beekeeper to buy a fresh batch of bees, which would cost more money. Autumn is another lousy time since there are fewer flowers, so a smaller amount of honey harvested, to begin beekeeping. The best time to begin beekeeping is during summer, which can be the time of the year where there are plenty of blooming blooms.
2. Buying used gear and old books. That is a familiar mistake made by many beginning beekeepers. Purchasing used old and gear beekeeping books is not a good thought, although it is clear that one would want to conserve money as much as possible. First, used gear can come with “inherited” issues. The extractor factory outlet might have a flow, or the uncapping knife mightn’t be sharp enough to uncap all the wax. This would surely impact the quality of one’s honey, which will ben’t an ideal scenario especially if a beekeeper is planning to commence a honey-selling business. Second, outdated info can be provided by old novels on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the conventional approach when there are quicker and better methods to keep beehives and production honey.
3. Refraining from buying protective equipment. Think relating to this. He/she’ll most likely come out as a pincushion with all the bee stingers if one does not wear protective equipment when managing the hives and accumulating the honeycombs. Protective equipment is not cheap, yes, but it is going to help beekeepers avert having to pay medical bills from all the bee stings.
These three mistakes are presented here to help they are avoided by future beekeepers. Before getting started beekeeping, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional beekeeper. If purchasing a certain thing appears overly pricey, always consider the end cost ( in case that they don’t purchase this item now, will it cost them more later on?). In the end, it is up to the person to determine the best strategy.
