I was totally bored. Every weekend would come and go and my family and I would always do the same things as everyone else, maybe visit the park or go to the movies. Now don’t get me wrong, we always enjoy spending time together. But with kids you kind of want to keep exposing them to new things and give them something which they can focus their positive attention upon. We had gotten them involved in various hobbies like collectibles and sports, so it was time to try something new.
About that time, I stumbled across an article about the depletion of the honey bee population. The article discussed one of the newest trends happening across the country – beekeeping. I was intrigued right off the bat! I had no idea that this hobby was seeing huge growth in urban areas now, as well as out in the country. I thought that perhaps this would be a great activity which our whole family could get involved in, raising and taking care of bees. In the process of getting our small colony started, I learned all about the various bee hives for sale, and so I thought it would be helpful to share what I’ve learned with others.

The first thing I learned is that there are lots of great beekeeping starter kits out there to help you begin if you’re a total novice. You don’t need to be Johnny Bee! Obviously you’re going to need honeybees, but before that happens you’ll need to find a hive. I liked the idea of a bee hive starter kit because these will usually come with most if not all of the tools which you’ll need, including the hive body, the frames which go inside, a bee smoker to calm the bees when you extract the honey, protective gear like gloves and face mask, and so on.
