Beekeeping

 

Honeybees are one of Yahweh's most amazing creations! The keeping and studying of honeybees is very addictive so be careful! Honeybees are important pollinators of many native flowering plants. If you would like to help your garden and neighborhood consider keeping a couple of colonies. As honeybees gather pollen and nectar they pollinate nearby crops, fields and gardens.

Nevada Backyard Beekeeping is fun and rewarding

Not only do honeybees provide pollination and enjoyment an established honeybee colony can produce excess honey, sometimes 50lbs or more! as well as beeswax, bee pollen and propolis! More on Become a Beekeeper
