Bee keeping has been gaining grounds and becoming popular in the world of farming. Though dangerous, one cannot deny the thrill of taking care of bees, cleaning out the wax holders and finally harvesting honey.
Some people do it as a hobby, just to kill time or out of curiosity, but to others, it’s a serious business, and even the main source of income.
The question is, how long does it take to produce a good amount of honey, and how much money and general investment do you put into it, what other benefits does one derive from bee keeping, and most of all, is it worth all the trouble and risk?
When we were younger, people always said bees wax is very tasty and is a delight to ingest. Well, as I haven’t done any extensive research on it, neither have I tried eating it, I cannot say for sure if it is true or not.
Honey is a commodity always chased after, especially the type that has very good quality, is thick enough, and has no residues or particles in it. Pure honey.
Honey has a lot of health benefits, and is recommended by Health experts to be used as a replacement of sugar, as it does not majorly increase the amount of blood sugar, but offers the same good sugary taste.
Honey also contains a lot of relaxins that are good for sore throats and colds.
Some Scientists have found that stings from bees have some health benefits, for example some diabetic patients get a bit better after bing stung by some bees. Pretty fascinating, right?
Well, I am not so much the farming type, but considering all these advantages, I can definitely say that beekeeping is worth it!
Beekeepers are heroes!
