SkyChild wrote:Hi, I have a few questions to bee-keeping people.
How does it all work? Do you make a hive and leave it there for them to move in, or do you buy them?
Do you need to feed them extra bits and pieces as well as the nectar they forage?
Is it difficult? Is it rewarding? Do you get stung? Do you have all sorts of cartoon-like nets and masks and costumes with breathing tanks?
Sorry, just very interested in learning about these sorts of things.
Thank you for your reply.
I might go and have a look for a beekeeping society near me (I think there are a few because there a lots of hives around)
It seems very interesting. And I didn't mean anything offensive about the suits, I know they are practical, it just reminds me of cartoons - how one bee manages to get inside, and then the cartoon gets stung and puffs up.
How many hives do people usually keep? Or is it purely down to space and personal perference?
