Potential pitfalls of a beginner beekeeper
Starting to get into beekeeping, so I’d like to ask you guys about things that may go wrong. I’m located at mount Carmel in Israel btw, gorgeous land 🙂 The rookie mistakes or the wildest, most unthinkable things that had happened to beekeepers.
Are there any criminals involved in the industry and charging “protection” fees?
Why are have the number of beekeepers decreased in recent years?
Is placing a hive close to train tracks bad for the bees?
Can honey be produced if the bees are fed sugar water?
Can wild boars destroy the hive?
