Getting started in beekeeping is not difficult and, to start off, you will need the following items: beehive(s) beekeeping tools suitable clothing bees beehive sites and, finally, somewhere to keep all your equipment. ACQUIRING BEEHIVES My advice is to start with two (or more) beehives.
The colony will choose a site out of direct exposure to sun, wind and rain with south-facing entrances (in the Northern Hemisphere), and the preferred cavity has only one entrance. From this knowledge, humans have been able to design the best type of artificial cavity to make for their bees and have learnt the best places to put them. Modern beehives and their preferred locations have been based on these criteria. Developing the colony On arrival at a new nest site, the workers immediately start to synthesize the honey in their stomachs into wax and begin to build comb.
Wax is normally a by-product for beekeepers and, as a guide, for each 60 kg (130 lb) of honey extracted from the hive, about 1 kg (2 lb) of beeswax is produced. This comes from the cappings of the honeycomb, which are removed during the honey-extraction process. 40 | A P R AC T I C A L M A N UA L O F B E E K E E P I N G COLLECTING PROPOLIS If you look on Google to find the composition of propolis, you will find many headings dealing with European propolis, American propolis, Indian propolis, South American propolis and so on and so on, which, of course, indicates that propolis composition varies enormously depending on its source.
