In a world where antibiotics are always the answer, there have been great strides in breeding programs working to promote better bees through selected genetics.
So this seems obvious, but we meet people all the time that can’t tell the difference between wasps, honeybees, bumble bees, and carpenter bees – we can’t totally blame them as they have just enough similarities to make it confusing. However, there are pretty major differences that make the honeybee stand out both physically and culturally.
Rotating comb for a healthier bee colony is a natural beekeeping technique that encourages better pattern in egg laying, better egg and honey production and a reduction of diseases by removing old and possibly contaminated comb.
Bees are inspiring creatures. They create their own food through foraging without damaging the plant they feed from. They do not waste anything – putting the wax, propolis, pollen, water, honey to work in an impressively efficient way.
