Did you know???
- Honeycombs are the most efficient structures in nature.
- Up to 80% of the world’s food production is dependent on pollination provided by honey bees.
- Bees and bee products have been used in many areas of health, including arthritis, antivirals, antibiotic treatment for burn victims, allergies, and sore throats.
I didn’t know any of this until Dan decided he wanted to learn to raise honeybees and took a class to become an Apiarist (Beekeeper). He started with 2 hives, in the spring of 2015, and now we’re both pretty fascinated with the whole process.
