Quality Beekeeping Equipment available in Dandenong

Honey bees are amazing to watch. The benefits of the honey bee to mankind is immeasurable. Honey bees have been around probably for as long as humans have, and it is one of two insects that produce food suitable for human consumption (ants produce honey too, but not in large enough quantities). The Japanese beetle produces lac, which is used in Japanese Lacquer, but that cannot be eaten.

Honey is super nutritious. Raw honey is nectar from flowers and contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Honey also has beneficial essential fatty acids and is antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial. The Bunyip Beekeeper offers beekeeping classes and sells beekeeping equipment in Dandenong.

Honeybees and honey are healing for most humans. However, some people are allergic to bee pollen, which can cause shortness of breath, throat swelling, and itchy hives.
