Beekeeping is where you maintain a hive of honey bees to collect honey, beeswax or royal jelly depending on your purpose. Bees will help pollenate your flower and vegetable gardens and are helpful to have. You can give away or sell honey, make candles out of beeswax or create any number of products.
