Beekeeping Gifts, Guides and Supplies

Beekeeping Gifts, Guides and Supplies – Beekeeping in the City, Town and Country

More and more people are getting into the gentle art of beekeeping, and it is more and more likely that you will be around someone who is starting beekeeping and needs some guidance, is already into beekeeping and needs some supplies, or may be just a fan of bees – so a fun gift would be perfect. Come to think of it – maybe that person is you!

I come to beekeeping naturally. That’s because my father was a beekeeper. And not a rural beekeeper – an urban beekeeper before city beekeeping was cool! We had a small house with a large lot, and Mom and Dad had 17 fruit trees and a huge garden, complete with compost heap. Somewhere along the line Dad added some beehives.

I have lots of memories of the beekeeper’s life, from watching my Mom and Dad run away in the car when the bees swarmed, to helping them drain honeycomb through Mom’s old (and clean) pantyhose, to of course enjoying the delicious honey!

Honey has many wonderful benefits – and it is tasty!

The Bee Beard: Beekeeper’s Pinnacle of Courage

My father was fascinated by his bee journals. He was only a high school graduate with endless curiosity.

I learned about bee beards where a scary process where someone puts bees on your face.

Rhett and Link went through this process as well as learning about a great beekeeping farm in California.

You will learn a lot about what it takes to make a commercial bee farm work.

Beekeeper’s Smocks and Suits

Beekeepers need special protective clothes and smocks to be safe around the bees. Here are some quality beekeeping suits.

I recently had a wonderful time speaking to a local Marin county beekeeper who lived relatively nearby. She said that she and other Sonoma county beekeepers were finding ways of fighting the nasty fungal infection “colony collapse” as best they could.

Where Can You Find the Laws about Beekeeping In your Area?

Some people ignore the laws. Michael Bush from the Practical Beekeeper says “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Some people have been fined, Start by the county extension center, or city hall or do an Internet search for “beekeeping laws in your area.” Or see if there is a local beekeeping group in your area and start there.
