I’m a beekeeper! I have been raising bees and producing my own honey for several years now. Its funny how much I like bees. They are just like pets and I work hard to take great care of them! Bees are fascinating. The hive consists mostly of females especially this time of year when they are kicking out the male bees called drones, in preparation for winter. I love fresh honey and use the wax for soap, lip balm and of course bees wax candles!
