Info: Beekeeping (or apiculture) is humans’ maintenance of bee colonies, commonly in artificial hives. The keeping of bees dates back to 9,000 years ago and has been traditionally for honey. In the modern era, it is more often used for crop pollination and other products, such as wax and propolis. A beekeeper (or apiarist) keeps bees to collect their honey and other products that the hive produces. A location where bees are kept is called an apiary or “bee yard.” Sweet-toothed brown bears in Spain’s the Cantabrian Mountains are partial to a honeycomb treat, so local beekeepers have tried many methods to keep them at bay. This restored wall does the job well. (Ref)
