In the Family of Beekeepers

Posted on August 5, 2012 by kulichik


In Soviet times people ate much of honey and loved it much. After the fall of the USSR only the rich could afford the product. And now it can be said that bee-keeping in Kazakhstan is experienced a new birth.

Bee-keeping in Kazakhstan was developed in 1986 when bees were taken here from Kiev. Our hero Alexander has been engaged in the industry since 1985. His son and grandson help him a lot and are willing to continue the family tradition. The National Unity of Beekeepers organizes regular seminars, exhibitions and training trips abroad. Thus, Alexander and his colleges have visited Israel recently.

In Israel they found out that their amount of bee families is too small. And if before the trip Alexander wanted to cut the number of bees, he changed his mind after he came come and did quite the opposite.

    Neat pictures! A couple of notes to correct your captions… The bee on the man’s hand is a drone (male), not a queen. The queen is pictured on a frame of wax, off to the right with two worker bees (females). She is the big long bee who looks different.
