I wouldn't be surprised if your interest in beekeeping stems from a need to protect the bees. For the last decade or so, horror stories of a world without food have been forced down our throats. Bees are pollinators--the best of their kind--so without them buzzing about, we can't grow our crops. As the world watched the number of honey bees drop to an all-time low, we were forced to prepare for the so-called "bee apocalypse". "Save the bees!" everyone cried out, as humanity retaliated en masse with picket signs, bee feeders, and fingers violently pointed at beekeepers for their role in the destruction of humanity. To this day, I still see the odd poster or fervent rant on social media describing how if the bees die, we die with them. It's a noble cause, but one that was born of misunderstanding. We will die off if we lose our pollinators, but the problem is that humanity worries about (and tries to save) the wrong bees. Hawaiian yellow-faced bees and bumblebees are endangered. Honey bees aren't, weren't, and never have been. Beekeepers--largely blamed for the bee apocalypse in the first place--play a significant role in keeping them off that list. I'd love to paint us as the superheroes this world needs, but let it be said that beekeepers--though we aren't the problem--aren't always the solution. Wild honey bees in the United States are at risk of endangerment, but it's mostly due to the destruction of their habitat. Some industries that cause this are too big and bad for humble beekeepers to stop. Still, to give credit where credit is due, beekeepers maintain honey bee populations and are therefore responsible for keeping the true bee apocalypse at bay. This awareness has caused beekeeping as both a hobby and an industry to flare. It's excellent that more people are taking an interest in bees and raising them, but I worry that the road to Hell truly is paved with good intentions. What happens when all the good souls looking to help the honey bees realize that their efforts weren't needed? Will they abandon their hives in favor of the next hyped cause? I hope not. The threat remains, though, and that's why I must give you this warning: Beekeeping is not for everyone. Before you commit to it, ask yourself why you're interested in it. If saving the bees is your answer, I'm sorry, but you might not have what it takes. Beekeeping has existed since as far back as 2500 BCE. Back then it was destructive and caused the downfall of many a colony. The ultimate goal was to harvest honey; no more, no less. It was only thousands of years later, in the 18th century, that designs for harmless hives made an appearance. It took a while for beekeepers to acknowledge their efficiency, but by the 19th century, these structures became the norm. Even so, harvesting honey was still the top priority. Our hives weren't designed to protect bees. They were accepted as a way to get what we want from them without killing them. That's what beekeepers do. Naturally, there will be exceptions to the rule, but at its core, beekeeping is a branch of agriculture. It may be one of the kinder forms of husbandry, but it's reaping nonetheless. Immersing yourself in the fascinating world of honey bees and hives could be the most rewarding journey you embark on. But it will only satisfy you if you understand that you can't fix something that's not broken. Honey bees don't really need your help, but you sure need theirs. If you can respect them as the intelligent, even dangerous creatures that they are, instead of treating them as the helpless bugs the world insists they've become, you'll do just fine.

Don't Worry BEE HAPPY! Start your Bee colony today ! There are 140,000 beekeepers in the United States keeping 3.2 million beehives. American beekeepers produced 200 million pounds of honey a year. In addition, honey bees pollinate and make possible many of the fruits and vegetables that make up the American diet. In fact, the annual contribution of honey bees to crop pollination and production is over nine billion dollars. But to tell the truth, these are not the reasons why many beekeepers have kept bees. Most keep bees because they enjoy the outdoors. They enjoy helping a young colony grow in spring. They enjoy watching the bees make honey. They enjoy harvesting, bottling, and selling honey as well.
