Beekeeping, like every other activity, has its dos and don’ts. Beginning beekeeping typically includes purchasing bees and the equipment that is needed. Nevertheless, some people who are beginning this hobby generally make a few blunders. It’s ok to make mistakes, and also this article can help new beekeepers prevent making the same mistakes others have in the past.
Here are three errors which every beekeeper should prevent:
1. Not knowing the best time to start hobby or a beekeeping company can prove to be a disaster. It can lead to a lack of your bees and cash. Since most bees perish during winter months winter is the worst possible time to start. This would compel a beekeeper to purchase a brand new mountain of bees, which would be more expensive cash. Autumn is another poor time since there are fewer blooms, so a smaller amount of honey picked to start beekeeping. The best time to start beekeeping is during summer, which can be the time of the year where there are lots of flowers that are blooming.
2. Buying used gear and old books on beekeeping. That is a common error made by many start beekeepers. Purchasing used gear and old beekeeping novels isn’t a great thought, although it’s understandable that one would desire to save money as much as possible. First, used gear can come with “inherited” problems. 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 definitely impact the quality of one’s honey, which will ben’t an ideal situation especially if a beekeeper is planning to commence a honey-selling business. Second, information that is aged can be provided by old novels on beekeeping. One might be stuck using the conventional method when there are faster and better methods to keep beehives and production honey.
3. Refraining from purchasing protective gear. Think about this. He/she will most likely come out as a pincushion with all the bee stingers if one does not wear protective equipment when managing the hives and amassing the honeycombs. Protective gear is pricey, yes, but it will help beekeepers avoid having to pay medical bills.
These three mistakes have been presented here to help future beekeepers prevent them. Before getting started beekeeping, it’s best to consult a professional beekeeper. If purchasing a particular thing seems too expensive, consistently consider the end cost (if they don’t purchase this item now, will it cost them more later on?). Ultimately, it is up to the individual to determine the best plan of action.
