The Art of Bee Keeping.
Nothing would be more satisfying than making and enjoying your own honey . Bee keeping can either be looked at as a hobby or as business venture depending on why you are doing it. Honey production is done by the worker bee in the colony. When a colony is started the workers begin by building combs where the young will be reared and also the storage of honey. The worker bees collect nectar from flower to flower and in the process they pass pollen grains facilitating pollination. Nectars are juices with different sugar concentrations and thy have some benefits. Bees produce enzymes from their bodies that makes them turn the sucrose into glucose and fructose that in turn makes the honey.
The enzyme glucose oxidase takes a small portion of the glucose and converts it into gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide. The acid has some benefit to the honey because its presence makes the honey made resistant to bacteria , fungi and mold. The hydrogen peroxide on the other hand provides the honey with short term protection against organisms as the honey ripens . The taste and the color of the honey you will harvest is dependent from which flowers the nectar will be collected from. Some people will have preference to certain colors of honey but the color of the honey does not influence the quality.
Bee keeping as a business can become very profitable if approached in the right way. Bee keeping does not limit you to make money from the honey alone, if you are creative enough you can make money from literally every product of the entire process. Creative marketing will enable you to sell pollination services to farmers as they understand the importance of the bees. The market for honey combs and wax still exists and you stand to make money with such products as well.
Most bee keepers who work on it as a full time business will agree that it takes time to build the business up but when it gets at the desired spot it will definitely pay off. Bee keeping does not requires acres of land or expansive hives making the business easier to run and commit to as well. Bee keeping as a hobby and as a business requires less physical effort compared to other ventures. Depending on how you take your bee keeping , there are different types of bee keepers.
