What You Should Know About A Beekeeping Suit

By Alec Smitts

Just about everyone has heard of the benefits of honey and it is used world wide as a sweetener. The only way you can get real honey is from bees. They produce this substance in their hive and it is a natural occurrence that can sweeten something any time it is used. Many people are experimenting with having a full blown beehive in their own backyard. There are a couple things you need to consider before choosing this type of hobby. Getting a good quality beekeeping suit is the first thing you should buy. This suit will keep you protected while getting honey from the hive or handling your bees. You should also get a pair of bee handling gloves as well.

There are a couple other things you should have before you bring your bees to their new home. Be sure to talk to your neighbors and family as well as check what the rules are in your area. Every city has their own regulations when it comes to having bees or other animals in your yard.

To make sure that you lessen the chances of your bees wondering off, you should have a fence around the area. If the fence is at least six feet tall and taller than the beehive, they will tend to stay around without straying off. Bees like to fly straight out from their hives, therefore if the fence is higher than the hive; it will cause them to have to fly a little higher to go over.

Before you bring your bees home, make sure you have an extra bee hive for them to go to if they feel like roaming off. They will sometimes fly away from their current hive to find a new one, this way they do not have to wonder off very far to find it.

Another thing you should have is an extra bee hive. This way if they decide they want to fly around and find another home, they will not have to fly far.

A beekeeping suit is one of the most important things that you will need before you bring the bees to their new home. They can be found in two pieces or a handy one piece that zips up the front. They are very affordable and should be worn with a helmet and gloves. These are used to protect the handler from getting stung.
