Jillee first discusses some of the positive reasons to become a beekeeper. One of the most important reasons is that pesticides, paracites and disease have destroyed most of the native varieties of honey bees in the United States. Since honey bees pollinate 130 different crops in the US, if we lose the honey bees, it threatens fruits, vegetables, tree nuts and other crops.


The article then has a lot of interesting photographs that show the installation of some new bees on property near Jillee’s nephew’s home. The hives look like raised boxes from the outside. There are also some helpful tips and recommendations at the end of the article, for anyone who might be considering beekeeping.

This isn’t a tutorial on beekeeping, but it’s a helpful introduction. Click on the How to Become A Backyard Beekeeper link below to read the complete article.
