Location: Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, GL12, UK
As I mentioned in my last post, in July this year I started a very busy job. To use the Thermosolar Hive effectively one needs a day above 20C to be able to be near these hives to deliver the thermosolar treatment and kill the varroa.

Beekeeping, like every other action, has its dos and don’ts. Start beekeeping generally involves the equipment that is needed and purchasing bees. Nevertheless, some individuals who are starting this hobby usually make several errors. It is acceptable to make mistakes, and this post can help new beekeepers prevent making the same mistakes others have before.
Here are three mistakes which every beekeeper should avoid:
1. Not knowing the best time to begin a beekeeping business or hobby can end up being a calamity. It can lead to a lack of your bees and cash. Since most bees die during winter months, winter is the worst possible time to start. This would drive a beekeeper to buy a fresh batch of bees, which would be more expensive money. Autumn is another inferior time to begin beekeeping, since there are fewer blooms, thus a smaller number of honey harvested. The best time to start beekeeping is during summer, which is the time of the year where there are lots of blooms that are blooming.
2. Buying used equipment and old books on beekeeping. This is a common error made by many beginning beekeepers. It is understandable that one would desire to save money as much as possible, but buying used old and gear beekeeping publications is not a good thought. First, used equipment can come with “inherited” difficulties. The extractor outlet might have a leak, or the uncapping knife mightn’t be sharp enough to uncap all the wax in one go. This would definitely affect the quality of one’s honey, which will ben’t an ideal situation particularly if a beekeeper is intending to commence a honey-selling company. Second, information that is dated can be provided by old books on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the traditional approach when there are quicker and better methods fabrication honey and to keep beehives.
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 gathering 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 errors are presented here to help future beekeepers avert them. Before getting started beekeeping, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional beekeeper. If buying a certain thing seems too pricey, consistently think about the end cost ( in case that they don’t purchase this thing now, will it cost them more later on?). In the long run, it’s up to the individual to determine the best strategy.
