Some of the earliest evidence of gathering honey from wild colonies is from rock paintings, dating to around 13,000 BCE. Gathering honey from wild bee colonies is usually done by subduing the bees with smoke and breaking open the tree or rocks where the colony is located, often resulting in the physical destruction of the nest location.

Thanks for sharing,

Whether we decide to keep our own bees or to plant bee friendly gardens and severely limit our use of pesticides

I love the early-spring sight of them buzzing in euphoria among my holly hedge, roses, privet and honeysuckle, when the air is thick with fragrance and the sound of their soothing drone. I am a beekeeping expert, and strive to spread the word about what beekeeping is, and how to get started! I’m interested in telling everyone about the first lessons in beekeeping, so stay in touch!

Cheers,

But not fast enough! I am a beekeeping expert and wish to spread the word about how to start beekeeping properly! The great hobby is essential to receiving fresh honey and even making a quick buck on the side! Who doesn’t enjoy fresh honey? I strive to share my beekeeping information around the world, even from Canada!

Cheers,

You’ve got some great links for further research on beekeeping…even picked up a nice pdf from a link in the comments.

Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby that really seems to be picking up steam. I see more and more “amateur” beekeeping enthusiasts getting involved. I guess you would say home beekeeping. Anyway, hopefully we can make a dent in keeping the bee population healthy until a solid cure for CCD comes up.

One more point.

We home school our kids and beekeeping makes a great subject for science or nature study…..long term studies.

I found a free ecourse on Home Beekeeping ….might be a good way for someone to look into backyard beekeeping.
