Backyard Beekeepers are installing their hives in increasing numbers this year, right in town and around the county. Perhaps people are staying more at home during this COVID 19 pandemic and many are really developing their interest in beekeeping as well as planting gardens, installing fruit trees and growing their own vegetables. Many have searched for an “at home hobby” that only takes about one hour per month and are undertaking Backyard Beekeeping. Keeping bees helps our earth, your own vegetable garden, as well as assisting your neighbors’ efforts. Fruit trees are also more prolific. A hive of honeybees go out up to five miles daily gathering nectar and accomplishing pollination. One hive usually produces double the amount of local honey the bees need to survive, so they have ample extra honey to share with the individual or family that provides them with a hive box and a small space in the backyard.
