Beekeeping, like every other action, has its dos and don’ts. Beginning beekeeping usually includes the needed equipment and purchasing bees. Yet, some people who are beginning this avocation generally make several errors. It’s ok to make mistakes, which post can help new beekeepers prevent making the same mistakes others have before.
Here are three blunders which every beekeeper should prevent:
1. Not understanding the best time to start hobby or a beekeeping business can prove to be a catastrophe. It often leads to some loss of your bees and money. Since most bees expire during the wintertime, winter is the worst possible time to start. This would force a beekeeper to purchase a fresh mountain of bees, which would cost more cash. Fall is another poor time to begin beekeeping, since there are fewer blooms, so a smaller number of honey harvested. The best time to begin beekeeping is during summer, which is the time of the year where there are plenty of blooms that are blooming.
2. Purchasing used gear and old books. This is a familiar mistake made by many start beekeepers. It’s understandable that one would desire to save money as much as possible, but buying used gear and old beekeeping novels is not a good thought. First, used gear can come with “inherited” difficulties. The extractor factory outlet might have a leak, or the uncapping knife might not be sharp enough to uncap all the wax in one go. This would surely affect the quality of one’s honey, which isn’t an ideal situation particularly if a beekeeper is planning to begin a honey-selling company. Second, old novels can supply information that is aged on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the traditional method when there are better and more rapid ways fabrication honey and to maintain beehives.
3. Refraining from purchasing protective equipment. Think about this. If one does not wear protective gear when managing the hives and collecting the honeycombs, he/she will come out as a pincushion with all the bee stingers. Protective equipment is not cheap, yes, but it’ll help beekeepers avert spending medical bills.
These three errors have been presented here to help future beekeepers prevent them. It’s a good idea to consult with a specialist beekeeper before getting started beekeeping. If purchasing a particular item 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 is up to the person to determine the best plan of action.
