I started off allergic to bees and after surviving numerous stings, I react worse to a mosquito bite than a bee sting. Dont wear perfume or colone around them and DEFFINATLY eat no bannas before working with them and it's amazingly easy.

Ever wonder why beekeepers use a smoker? It makes the workers think the hive is on fire so they fill up on honey in preperation to evacuating the hive. Full tummy makes it hard to bend the abdomon to sting.

Want to keep bees in a residental area without having the neighbors in an uproar? Thin elevation. Thats right. Build a stable stand and put them on the roof. They will fly over everyones head and then if they end up stung, they were doing somnething they shouldn't have been.

What's stopping you from keeping bees now? Money is my only barrier. Almost anyone can do it and the rewards are oh, so SWEET!!
