    I have tried to start a couple of times. Build boxes and equipment needed. Then got busy with work and missed the deadline to order bees. There is a club near by i need to go join to get some help.

    My wife’s been wanting to keep some bees for awhile now. I think probably soon we will take the plunge.

    my neighbor raises/keeps them, expensive hobby he has had at least 6 of his hives die and that's a lot of bees and not cheap to replace.. this year I think he added 5 more hives and had his best year for honey in 3-4 yrs. If we dont quit using so many pesticides we are not going to have any bees left, heard scientists think they've found out that's why bees are having a hard timing fighting off that fungus that attacks/kills them.

    I have been keeping bees for about 10 years now really rewarding when it works out but can be frustrating as well ccd is a real problem due to pesticides I lose about 10 percent of my hives every year as already mentioned it is a expensive hobby but when you get a good yield it is very easy to sell that liquid gold lol the problem I have always had is you canít produce enough people are crazy about buying local honey

    I just paid 48.00 for 3 quarts, it had went up about 4 dollars a quart since last time I bought it from him. But I know how much it costs him to maintain his bees so doesnt bother me too much plus I know where it came from.
