Helpful Hints For Hives At Home

Before getting into beekeeping, it is important to get tested for bee sting allergies. A small percent of the population has a severe reaction to beestings, so make sure you are cleared by your doctor before continuing.

Bees only sting when they feel threatened, and die after stinging so you can imagine they only sting when it’s their last option. You can work in your garden along side bees as long as you do not disturb the hive or a bee while they are pollinating. You can also wear a bee suit, gloves and mask while working near the hive for extra protection.

Before installing your hive and bees, make sure to check zoning laws in your area and make sure your neighbors are on board for your new hobby.
