Beekeeping can be a fascinating hobby but it requires just about the same commitment to owning a pet. You need observation skills and some physical skills and no matter your age, you will always keep learning with bees.


At times a hive may need feeding.


During the spring hives will swarm because that’s the natural way bees propagate especially when the bees become overcrowded.


During spring and summer a hive will need attention every week.


Timing is essential in beekeeping and therefore you have to be commit. 


You are best to read a few books to get an understanding of the language beekeepers use.
