    Interested in starting up keeping bees, but I am alergic (have to carry epi-pen) Should I pursue this or not? We need honey bees badly in our area for the gardens…have not had any these past 3-4 yrs. Thank you, sincerly, Erin Jerrett jerrett@live.com

      Erin,

      Great question! This is something we cover in detail in the new DVD. Actually David the Vice President of the Washington Beekeepers Association is now actually allergic to bees as well. Should you pursue beekeeping? I say this in the most respectful and honest way possible: That’s totally up to you, just make sure you understand the risks associated.

      I hope you have a great Tuesday!

    I really liked your video. It wasn’t too long ago we had a bear go through our neck of the woods. I guess my concerns that it might find my new beehives wasn’t totally unfounded though so far nothing has gotten to them except maybe the neighbors. Do you have any suggestions for neighbor “robbers”. I originally thought that because bees would sting anyone trying to get into them that no one would bother them but bee keeping is not that unfamiliar to people in this area. Keep the videos coming. They are entertaining and helpful.

    If you are going to plant clover, you should try the “White” the bees here in the UK love it and the honey taste is exquisite.

    I would like to see Ron wearing a shirt that says “Made in America”, instead of one that reads “Japan” in future videos. Think about it.
    Best, Dave

    THIS ERIN IS THE SAME REASON I HAVEN’T PURSUED BEEKEEPING AS I’M DEATHLY ALERGIC TO BEE STINGS. WHETHER THEY ARE HONEY BEES, YELLOWJACKETS, WASPS ETC. THEY ARE VERY DANGEROUS TO ME. YET WE NEED THE BEES HERE SO WE CAN GET OUR NUT AND FRUIT TREES AND BERIES POLINATED, NO ONE ELSE CLOSE HAS HIVES.

    Dave, For the bear, I would pack a 44 magnum for self defense. Bear meat makes a really good sausage. If you are against killing the bear then get a good taser, along with the pepper spray. A cop in Anchorage Alaska taserd one in his back yard and it seems to have not returned since. He said it rolled on the ground and cried. It would be like it getting caught in the electric fence and not being able to get off, until you turn it off. I’m just looking to raising bees when I move to Idaho in early 2013. Loved the first tape and looking forward to the second.

    Hi Ron,
    You mentioned checking out that smoker that you got overseas to sell to us here, isn’t there a place here in America you could check for smokers? We need all the business we can get HERE. Also who was the girl in the video? It would have been nice for you to introduce her and ALL of the dogs! All in all, I love your videos and all the great information. THANK YOU SO MUCH! God Bless…

    Enjoyed all your videos. Not only are they informative, they show your commitment to the hobby/industry and your followers, and as they say, are worth many words that just can’t convey what you show. Looking forward to the new video.

    Thanks for the personal introductions!

    Your advice about getting the electric fence first to protect against bear attacks agrees with what some experienced beekeepers have told me,

    “Put your fence up some weeks before putting your hives in place. The bears in the area will check it out then, get a little shock, satisfy their curiosity and then leave it alone. Putting a fence up after a bear attack may not work. Many bears will charge through an electric fence to get honey.”

    My wife and I live in an urban community in upstate NY and were considering bees as a hobby to do our part with helping out and being green. She has lovely multi-flower gardens surrounding our house but we don’t have a lot of room. I noticed your “towers” (liked the jimi towers) and was wondering how many, how big, etc….any suggestions would be appreciated. Loved the dogs by the way

      Bee hives aren’t particularly big Richard. That said, there are some considerations on where to place your hive. Depending on your area there may be laws to consider as well. I’d do a google search for your particular area with the words “beekeeping regulations” to see what comes up. If that doesn’t pull anything for you look for your local beekeeper org as they will have a ton of information about legality, etc. The hives are about 22″ by about 18″ if you take into account the bottom board and the top cover. They can be fairly short or very tall depending on how much nectar is flowing in your area. You’ll want to make sure that the bees have room to land and that they aren’t flying into neighbor’s yards… a fence around your space is helpful to push the bees skyward. Hope that helps and do consider posting other questions on our forums… we’d love to help! http://www.worldofbeekeeping.com/forum/
