  • Locate apiaries far from human dwellings.
  • Put warning symbols near your apiary. This is to ensure safety of your family and neighbours.
  • Be sure your location have a good soil type, a variety of flower types and ideal weather for keeping bees.
  • Buy materials from respected dealers especially high quality ones to last you years.
  • Don’t use any form of insecticides or anything that is toxic to bees or other pollinators.
  • Beekeepers use smokers to during management of the colony including harvesting. Smoke stimulates bees to gorge honey or nectar, temporarily disrupting the defensive behaviour of the colony and making the bees easier to handle.
