K, so this topic is kinda geared towards im a beekeeper mostly cause he's the only beekeeper I "know", but anyone can answer (obviously).

Lately (like, since yesterday) I've been thinking about the idea of beekeeping, mostly for honey production. It sounds fun and and it would really cut down on the cost of buying honey (that stuff is EXPENSIVE). Anywho, can anyone give me some insight on what its like to bee a beekeeper? Is it fun? Pricey? Really hard/easy? I wanna know!! :woohoo:

Well, we're starting to try to lay off on the sugar and the only other healthy-ish sweetener (besides honey) that we would use would be maple syrup or agave nectar and out of the three honey sounds like the easiest thing to "make" ourselves and we all LOVE honey on our toast (meaning we use a lot of it) sooo, to answer your question....

A lot :P

Cool, I don't know anything about bees :P

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up on wings like eagles,
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not faint.

You do realise that honey is much more concentrated than normal sugar, so it's not a super healthy alternative...?
And @beekeeper! Where are you?!

That's awesome!! Beekeeper is really a great thing to do. You will be surprised of how much you learn about them after a little time of beekeeping. That's one of the things I really like about being a beekeeper. Beekeeping is super fun and exciting! It is kinda pricey. I can give you places to get supplies that are the cheapest and best I could find. And it isn't too hard. But, unless you use only medium and small boxes as some beekeeper do, you will have to lift hive bodies that will weigh around 80 lb. And if you do get into it I could give you tips on some stuff I learned starting out.

Beekeeping is not easy
In order to produce 1 pound of honey, 2 million flowers must be visited. A hive of bees must fly 55,000 miles to produce a pound of honey. One bee colony can produce 60 to 100 pounds of honey per year. An average worker bee makes only about 1/12 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.

Wow.

...I still wanna do it though :silly:

well, at least here in Colorado, beekeeping isnt that expensive, initial costs for high quality stuff can be as high as $500, but after that the cost lowers considerably

Yeah it was Google I don't see nothing wrong with that. Can you tell me how that is wrong?
Never said it was wrong :) I just found it humourous because of all the information packed into the tiny paragraph lol
