Raising honey bees is not for the light of heart. It takes a great deal of work and patience. But it is a project so wonderful for the environment. You are protecting a species that has a major impact in the food chain through pollination. By raising honey bees you are also protecting other endangered pollinators by creating a landscape attractive to them.
