Every spring a beekeeper must be ready with his/her bees for the upcoming honey-producing months.
Bee Well Honey in Pickens held their 3ed annual Bee Day kickoff on Saturday morning. The owner Kerry Owen says, "the frost and cold weather delayed the start of Bee season quite a bit this year."
According to Backyard Beekeepers Association agriculture depends greatly on the honeybee for pollination. Honeybees account for 80% of all insect pollination. Without such pollination, we would see a significant decrease in the yield of fruits and vegetables. Bees are the only insect in the world that make food that humans can eat.
Bee Well Honey is a beekeeper and they also sell tasty honey, along with tons of other items that are good for your taste buds and your health.
Wikipedia says beekeeping is the maintenance of honey bee colonies, commonly in hives, by humans. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees in order to collect honey and other products of the hive (including beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly), to pollinate crops, or to produce bees for sale to other beekeepers.
Honeybees are a scientific mystery because they have remained unchanged for 20 million years even though the world has changed around them.
